Thanks to a colleague, I have an easy lesson for introducing/practicing painting procedures to kinders and first graders. Using white tempera, we paint simple shapes (oval, triangle) along with line (straight, curve) to create 3 cats/kittens.
Begin with a small and large (relatively) ovals.
Next add 2 small triangles and one curve line.
Finish with 2 short, straight lines for legs.
For the second cat, angle the large oval diagonally.
Add the ears & tail.
Then finish with lines for legs.
The third cat starts like the first but add 'standing legs' with angle lines.
The kids had a blast! We took a little time at the end of the lesson to add a second coat of white paint. Each class used a different color of 4 1/2" x 6" dark construction paper to help sort the classwork...
In the next class, we'll read the nursery rhyme "3 Little Kittens" and add details with construction paper crayons. Stay tuned...
