The grade three students were excited when they learned that their teacher is an artist. I’m happy that they think that there is something fascinating about the act of making things. I like their curiosity about art. I showed them this image.
After asking the students to answer the questions, What do you see? What do you notice? How does the painting make you feel? they wrote acrostic elephant poems.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos of some of the heart-felt poetry that they shared, but they were very well done.
