My first graders really need help with their fine motor skills this year. After completing a very successful Kandinsky Concentric Circle painting lesson noted below,
I followed up this past week with a tree inspired lesson. Once again, I found my inspiration from
Jen Draw the Line At and I used her lesson suggestions for this very successful lesson.
My student's used Crayola Metallic crayons instead of the Crayola Construction paper crayons and we used juice lids for some bigger circles in the stamping part of the lesson.
On day two constructed the trees and circle leaves.
I passed out a 12 x 4 inch piece of black paper and had two different sizes of
square paper for the circles.
Yes, this was a challenge since we did not use pencil, but we drew with our scissors.
I will definite repeat lesson for next year! I will be displaying these soon.
