Everything You Need to Know You Can Learn in Kindergarten!

Come join our class of kindergarteners as we learn to work together, grow into voracious readers, become authors of our own original stories, and feed our natural curiosity about the world by developing as scientists.

Watercolor Penguins

Last December we learned all about penguins. To culminate our unit we learned how to draw penguins. Like all kinder art, this project took a few days. First we did a directed drawing of several penguins. The students drew with pencil and went back to trace over with black fine tip sharpie. Next, after erasing the pencil lines, we used crayons to color the beaks and feet orange, the belly and eye white, and the sun yellow. Then we used black watercolor paint to finish our penguins. Finally we painted the background - Antarctica - with a blue watercolor wash. And as always we wrote about our penguins.
