Fall Trees

Earlier this year (back in Fall), Kindergartners made Fall Trees.


MATERIALS:
9x11 White Drawing Paper
Crayons
Red, Orange, Yellow Paint
Tree Visuals

MOTIVATION/DISCUSSION:
With the students I talked about various trees: palm trees, evergreen trees, birch trees, apple trees, etc. We then discussed the parts of a tree (branches, trunk, etc.) and observed what the leaves were doing outside.

STEPS:
I completed a step by step guided drawing with the students on how to draw a tree.
1. Draw Trunk
2. Add Large Branches
3. Add Small Branches
4. Draw Ground Line
5. Color Grass and Sky (completely)
6. Using only their pointer finger, students added leaves to their tree using Fall Colors.

Kindergarten Self-Portraits

Here are a few adorable self-portraits completed by Kindergarten students.
 Since I teach K-12, I plan on having the students draw their self-portrait 4 different times over the course of 6 years. I think this would be a really fun display come the art show!
