The last few weeks in grades k-1, we have been really focusing on the element of Texture! I have introduced this element in a variety of ways, beginning with listing texture qualities, feeling smooth, bumpy, soft objects, etc. We played with clay, made texture rubbings using leaves and self-made texture plates, and we finished by making stamps, illustrating cacti and even watching a video on a singing cactus! The song is incredibly catchy and the students found themselves singing it as they left the room: so parents if you heard your kids singing this song at home, this is why!
Take a look below at all the wonderful texture projects we’ve done throughout the last few weeks!
