I'm a bit behind in posting as my youngest was in for eye surgery on Friday...everything turned out terrific and he is back at it causing his siblings lots of grief.
Here is a project I did with Kindergarten today. Fairly straight forward....its bit of an old standby for most teachers so I tend not to use this technique too much. It was a big hit with kindergarten though.
paper plates, cut in half with a semi circle cut out of the center
colored tissue paper cut into squares
black pipe cleaner
Take your paper plate and run a line of glue following the arc of the rainbow shape. I started the kids out from the inside edge....it tended to be easier to work thru than the other way.
Pick a color and smunch up the tissue paper....place into the glue and continue until the entire row is completed. We did not use the end of pencil as those little fingers work really well on their own.
Continue row by row selecting a different color each time.
This was easily mastered by all the kids.
Continue until the paper plate shape is covered.
I then gave the kids a template to trace around of a pot of gold. I just traced these out on some thin cardboard.
The then had to cut 3 coins out of gold paper and glue them with a glue stick to the top of their pot. We added a small piece of black pipe cleaner (about 3 inches) which we taped to the back of our pot and glued the handle to one end of our rainbow.
That's it. They turned out better than I expected and the kids had a great time. Sorry it's a bit late.
