I set up a class at our winter homeschool co-op using the story+art ideas from A Mommy’s Adventures.
I have a theme each week and check out books from the library and bring art supplies for a craft. There are about a dozen kids signed up, grades K-2, including my Tori and Katie (for whom I planned the class).
Last week, we read some ABC books and did initial collages.
I had all sorts of collage materials, hoping to appeal to all the boys and girls: moss, rocks, sequins, shells, beads, jewels, stickers…
We all got a kick out of this alphabet book: A is for Salad. The pictures illustrate the letter, but the words say something a little different.
Victoria’s and Katherine’s initial collages:
I did one with Alex at home. He was so proud!
I couldn’t get the ‘A’ to print straight. Oh well, he didn’t mind.
This week, we read about dots and did Do-A-Dot pages.
Those were a real hit!
I got the dot printables from Making Learning Fun. We used the theme of Swimming Creatures to go along with our Apologia Science class.
