First Grade Arlo
First graders read the book Arlo Needs Glasses. It is a great book about a boy's dog who can't see, goes to the eye doctor, gets glasses. It has pop ups and interactive pages which we loved exploring. The first week we drew Arlo together and went over our lines with black oil pastel. This past week I demonstrated coloring Arlo with chalk by using the chalk piece on its side. We then added a darker color around the edges of Arlo and blended the colors with our fingers. The background was any color chalk of their choice.
Check back next week when we college glasses for Arlo.
Thanks to Deep Space Sparkle for this great idea!
