First Grade Giraffes

After reading "Giraffes can't Dance," we drew Gerald giraffe. We added lines to the  background with rulers to break it up into shapes. I just love this book. It lends itself to lots of discussion about the power of our words to hurt or to build each other up.  Our next step is to  fill each shape with crayon patterns of different colors. I made a pattern page with a few idea starters.  Next week we will paint each area with a watercolor wash. These are cute and will be saved for the spring Art to Remember program.
