Joan,
Its people like you that keep people like Leah Marie, and probably BJ
from sharing ideas for fear of harsh criticism like yours. I was just
trying to help out Sarah with an idea. If you didn't like it then just
delete it, thats all. Thats why I don't share more ideas because of
criticism from people like you. Thank-you Leah Marie and BJ.
First of all the children cut and tear paper into particular shapes,
producing special edges, of their own on their own. I show them how to
achieve this. It is NOT a photocopied cutout where they don't learn
anything at all and its done for them. Alot of projects are done with a
step by step procedure, thats how they learn how to draw, paint, model
in clay,etc.
The children glue on torn paper for feathers, letting them overlap each
other.Yarn is used only as a hanger. The children learn how cutting and
tearning give different textures to the paper owls. Doing this paper
collage, my main objective was for the children to learn what Texture is
and how different kinds of edges give special texture effects. They also
learned some shapes: oval, triangle, circle, rectangle.( the paper size
was suppose to be 7"x12"(sorry for mistake)
What grade level do you teach Joan?? Have you ever taught 1st graders??
It doesn't sound like it.
I was just trying to give you an idea Sarah, and all I got was grief.
Maybe I will just read the posts from now on instead of sharing my
ideas. This list SHOULD be a safe place to share ideas, like Leah Marie
said, but evidentally it is not.
