It's Valentine's Day week at Carroll Elementary! I love holidays in elementary school; the kids get so excited. I get excited too; it's a time when I can get all my classes back on track by adding an "extra" project for classes that are ahead (i.e. haven't had as many snow days as the other classes).
This week, my 2nd grade classes that are ahead are having fun with the element of art line and watercolor resist. They drew a heart in the middle of the page, using any crayon color they liked. Then, they added more and more lines, adding some creative ideas like dotted lines and zigzag lines. Lastly, they painted the whole piece of art with watercolors.
