With the Andy Warhol projects completed at the beginning of last week, the Halloween celebrations could begin! We started off with some coloring pages to work on coloring neatly inside the lines before moving on to drawing our own Halloween landscapes. They ended up looking fantastic! With the liberty to draw pumpkins, ghosts, trees, and witches wherever they wanted, each drawing was came out as a unique creation.
This week, I brought in a box of “worms” (colored pasta) and some toys for everyone to play with. We also decorated Halloween bags and made pop-up haunted house cards. Everyone used their landscape practice to add in interesting little details to their houses. Ghosts peeked through windows and pumpkins sat in the yard. They were all very cute, though I think the most exciting thing for the class was that when the card was propped up, the house would pop out to stand on its own.
