The first day of spring is just around the corner. Looking for a fun way to add some color to your classroom and celebrate the changing season? These beautiful hyacinths come to us from the Art Exhibit at the 2018 California Kindergarten Conference. A big thanks to Cathy Doll from San Ramon Valley USD for sharing this great idea! She used corks, paint and crayons to create these beautiful hyacinths.
This week’s Tuesday Teaching Tip is as fun as it is topical. It comes to us from former CKA Board member and TK teacher, Heather Morrow. We especially love how easily this idea could be reworked for a different theme simply by choosing a different shape and wrapping paper!
I gave pairs an outline of a tree, some strips of wrapping paper, and a star. They worked together to make a collage and decorate their tree by ripping small pieces of the wrapping paper. I think they turned out so cute!
This week’s Tuesday Teaching Tip comes to us from TK teacher Lisa Maloney’s contribution to the 2017 Art Exhibit at the PK1 Conference. She had her students use sponges to create these colorful butterflies.
Your classroom will soon be in full bloom with today’s Tuesday Teaching Tip from none other than the CKA Art Team! They were inspired by Charlotte Diamond’s beautiful song, Each of Us is a Flower. We were so lucky to have Charlotte sing at our PK1 Conference this year! We hope this tip gets your classroom garden blooming!
This week’s Tuesday Teaching Tip comes to us from the classroom of first grade teacher Anne Aranda who submitted this “World in a Classroom” idea for the Art Exhibit of our PK1 Conference. It would make a great activity for Earth Day! Have an art project you’d like to share? We’d love to have it! Check out the info on our Art Exhibit.
