Pumpkins & Tiles
The kids drew pumpkins, on green construction paper, using chalk pastels. The paper was cut to 12x12" squares, and as they finished their pumpkins, I tacked them to the wall to form a 'quilt.' They also created the 6x6" 'tiles' drawing from mexican tiles, and using markers.
Each kid drew two pumpkins, (and took one home)
I showed them how to divide the 6" paper into 4, using guidelines, and then drawing the repeating patter within the tile.
The kids had no school today (teacher parent conferences) so we had fewer kids than last week.
