Last week, the 2nd Grade class completed the Value Silhouette project. It consisted of 3 parts. First, they drew or traced an animal of their choice onto their papers. Second, they painted a value scale around the animal. And finally, we had a critique where the class got to talk to each other about things they were proud of and things they thought they could do better. After critique, I let everyone go back and correct anything they wanted to fix before turning in their papers. I was so impressed with how well the class handled feedback from their peers! Everyone was very supportive of the work of their classmates. These paintings are now up in the hallway for everyone to admire.
