Re: First Day with Kinders???


Date: Sat Aug 11 2001 - 11:34:12 PDT

I teach kindergarten. I did read them a book, I recommend THE ART BOX. Then
I had small art prints layed face down on the tables in pairs, one for each
child. After the book, the kiddos wents in groups to the table and chose a
print, not looking at it but hiding it against their chest. AFter everyone
had one, they were to get up and find the person with the matching print and
sit down together. I then had them talk for a few minutes on what was in the
painting, mentioning colors and shapes. Then got everyone quiet and asked
each pair to show their prints and share one thing they found in their
artwork. Worked good and helps teach them to take turns and pay attention. JH
