COMING BACK TO SCHOOL IS SUCH AN EXCITING TIME FOR KIDS!
And it is so very important to kick things off with lots of activity on the very first day, especially projects like this one, that can then be continued for several days to come...eventually creating a unique bulletin board or ceiling art.
This project provides the children with a fun art experience focusing on" back to school things". This "easy-art lesson plan with patterns can be used easily in the classroom, as well as done with more complicated creativity in the art room - TWO options are presented.* Lesson also gives children an opportunity for group discussion, and a chance to write about their thoughts about this happy time of the year.
