Tuesday SOL Faces I have found





This is a Tuesday Slice of Life for Two Writing Teachers
Check out their website for many more reflections on teaching.


______________________________



In the writing center,
the art corner,
in crayon,
pencil,
paint.

No one tells them to draw or paint people. 

Yet,
they appear
and disappear
spontaneously.

Round faces,
triangle parts,
square possibilities.  

Spidery lines.
Arms and legs? 
Or is that hair? 

Big wide eyes, and
every now and again,
eyebrows and pupils, too.
Crooked lips, 
tilted smile,
frazzled look.

Ears?
Unsure.

Nose?
Not consistently.

Hair?
Sometimes.

No one tells them to draw or paint people. 

Yet,
they appear and 
disappear
spontaneously.

  1. Just that stage, some noticing a few more details than others. It's so interesting seeing the steps of drawing & how it proceeds. I'm glad you shared, Maureen.

  3. We use a book, read it then have the kids draw their favorite character. The little ones love it, and they are pushed to be creative as we read the story first without showing the pictures, then afterwards we read it again and show them, it's so fun to see how they picture it in their heads. Today it was Inspector Dewey by Kristen Heimerl, inspectordewey.com is her site. This is a books with all sorts of cats and it's a great object for this!
