Finger Paint with Topic
Procedure: Pour one or two tablespoons of liquid starch onto paper. Sprinkle powdered or undiluted tempera over it. Children use hands to spread starch and paint over paper to make a pleasing design or simple picture. Encourage them to experiment with using different parts of their hands. Students then place cutout pictures of their favorite subject on wet painting, or paste them on when painting is dry. Also used this procedure for mural backgrounds.
Student Strengths & Goals
Materials: Silver Metallic paper and Cray-Pas or oil pastels, small mirrors.
Children spend some time looking in the mirror before drawing a self portrait on shiny silver paper. I use 12x18 sheets, or if I have time I precut ovals to represent a \'Mirror.\' After the portrait is fully colored in with oil pastels, I have students design, measure, cut and assemble a frame from construction paper. These framed portraits hang on a bulletin board titled "SELF REFLECTIONS" and below each portrait is a short piece of writing describing what each student defines as their strengths and their goals. Older students write these self reflections during first wee writing time, and younger students dictate to a scribe on the computer.
