Kinder, 2nd, 5th Books...A little more challenge each year!

At the start of this year, I challenged the students with a few bookmaking skills. The Kindergarten and Pre- K are learning about shape names and how to with both straight and curved lines! Trust me, most of them do not come in here with this knowledge!! But very soon, it just unlocks and they catch up with the shapes! They spent time with coloring and cutting skills with shapes, then used those to create a accordian book!
The 2nd Graders were using their memory to think of a special moment that they experienced during the summer. They had 4 pages in their diamond books to illustrate that story!
The 5th Graders were introduced to the abstract work of Piet Mondrian. We looked at his grey composition with primary colored squares popping up. This was a perfect chance to make some Mondrian Pop up Books!!
