Wild Things

I think every Kindergartner should do a "Wild Things" project at least once!

Day 1:  First, I read the story "Where the Wild Things Are" to them as a class. After they heard the story, we discussed the different textures and body parts the saw in the illustrations.  They drew their wild things in pencil first, and then traced them with black crayon.

Day 2: Students used water color paints to add color to their wild things.

Day 3: I had them cut out their wild thing first.  Kindergartners needs lots of time to cut & lots of practice! After they cut out their wild thing, they used texture plates to create an interesting background.  Last step- glue it all together!

Check out our wild things below!
