Well, it's still February so I'm going to post one of the Valentine's Day lessons I did my K/1 class.......I might also use this lesson in for Mother's Day with one of my other classes. When Mother's Day comes around I like to look through the Valentine's lessons because I think us mommy's can never get too many cards with hearts on them:)
It's a non-original idea, but I'd never tried this version before.
1. Put heart stickers on paper.
2. Paint over heart stickers.
3. Let dry (by the time we had the desks and tables cleaned up from the painting, they were dry enough), and peel off the stickers.
I had a helper the day before the lesson, so I also decided to blue tape the borders of the white paper to a board to give the finished painting that beautiful white frame around it.
So super simple! I did have a couple students who needed extra help on the concept. They were painting pictures around the hearts, even though I explained and demonstrated the whole process. They needed extra encouragement and communication to paint directly over the stickers.
