Kindergarten Pink Piggies!
First of all THANK YOU PAINTED PAPER
for the pig inspiration!
I had pinned Laura's front facing pig lesson and it was the perfect cap to our farm-related lessons in kindergarten.
I had the students trace a small circle for the snout
and then we worked outward from there to draw the pigs.
Most of the kids drew a baby piglet from the front OR side as well- some mud and filled in the sky with rubbing crayons.
They are so fun!
Today was PINK day!
A perfect introduction to color tints.
And if you usually get the "but pink is for girls!" response from the kiddos
this book is great:
Pink Me Up by Cherise Mericle Harper
Despite any apprehensions to pink though- the automatic response to mixing "a little red with a blob of white" is "oh my god PINK!".
We also printed with cardboard strips dipped in green tempera paint to add some grass.
