April Showers: Art + Writing
What a precious way to create a writing prompt and reflection experience for kindergarten students: Little yellow raincoat 'slickers' for spring! Sharing an umbrella with a friend!!! I took these photos last week during my author-lady visit to Garden Elementary in Venice, FL.
These beauties really brightened their spring time kindergarten classroom's bulletin board -- all of those little yellow slickers looked bedazzlin'! Thought I'd better hurry and get these posted while its still APRIL!
Where does the time go? Before ya know it...... May flowers will be upon us!
Today over at our PreK+K Sharing collaborative blog, we have a new guest-author posting about the value of taking the time to 'teach' drawing skills (specifically adding details to drawings) for young children and the connection to writing skill development. Click right here to go over to April Larremore of "Chalk Talk" fame and read her amazing insight. The pictures she has to share are incredible!
