1st Grade Fall Trees

So first grade painted trees using the "Y" method with tempera paint. On day two, we added details on the ground with oil pastels and sponge printed the leaves. Day 3, we took actual leaves and printed them in fall colors on giant pieces of paper. Lastly, we matted our tree paintings with our leaf prints. We used a touch of gold glitter paint on our prints to make them shimmer as you walk by. First grade did a great job on these! :)

My first grade prodigy. He is absolutely gifted...

We talked about how branches grow towards the sun. Most kids got the idea, a few didnt... lol

Just Amazing!

Here is the display when you walk into the school. There are some kindergarten paper bag trees as well.
