First grade Giant Squids

While our apples are being glazed and loaded into the kiln, first graders are working on their giant squids. They were encouraged to choose their squid  paint color. It is a standard that early grade make choices as their art proceeds.  Now they are cutting lots of tentacles. Real squids have 10 but ours might be surviving on a few less. This project was drawn on 24" by 36" tag board. This was a stretch for these young artists. No matter what size paper the children receive, they usually draw a small object  smack dab in the center. This has been a good lesson in utilizing the entire art material provided. We have explored synonyms for "big" as  we complete this huge, enormous, gigantic, mighty, giant squid
