Kindergarten Self Portrait, Line, Cutting, Gluing

Ok, so I ran into some problems transferring my lesson plan from word to here.  It doesn't look perfect but I wasn't about to retype the whole thing.  It looks ok, but not perfect.

 Well, feel free to use this lesson.  Just let people know where you got the idea.  Another variation on this lesson is to use multicultural construction paper vs. the die cut people (I use to make it more doable for kindy) to cut out body parts.  I have done just that with first grade and it goes pretty well.  It may add a day to your lesson.

I hope to add example photos soon and keep your eyes peeled for more lessons to come as I gear up for the new school year.

     b. During the introduction and continued class discussions students will learn vocabulary including principal of design line (straight, fat, thin, zig-zag, wavy, broken)

     c. Teacher demonstrates how to use glue on the square first and then attaching the square to the lined 12” x18” construction
          i.Suggestion: use phrase “dot, dot, dot, just a little not a lot
     d. Teacher explains good craftsmanship: how to use the tiles in rows without overlapping (a good way to explain it is like real tile with grout in between and if they overlap you would fire the tile guy)
