Shooting Stars

Kindergarten students learned to make 4 different types of lines this week, practicing their neat coloring and even painting with watercolor! I was really impressed with their ability to follow directions and paint with watercolor!

Students used crayons and traced their shooting star on watercolor paper, they then followed along with me on the smartboard, practicing straight, bumpy, zig-zag, and loop de loop lines.These lines would create a tail on their shooting star.

During our second class, we went over painting procedures and learned how to activate the watercolor. Students painted over their crayon lines and it created a wax resist, not allowing any paint to cover the dark crayon lines.
