My K students LOVE to paint. They like to paint paper, people, tables, you name it, they’d paint it. We do talk often about “we paint paper, not people” but you know there is always a couple of kids who paint their hands or their neighbor.
To get that out of their system, I try to do a lot of paint projects with them. We only have 30 minutes together so it is a whirlwind especially when no one is there to help wrangle any of the 27 student classes. I can do it on my own and often do but Whew!
For this lesson, I demoed how to draw 4 basic shapes. We talked about the primary colors and they painted the shapes. We then talked about secondary colors and they painted the backgrounds.
