My Friday fix is my art/writing project of the week! We have been up to our wings in bats this week and I couldn’t wait to make another writing project for their portfolios. I like to incorporate art into writing. Not only does it make a great bulletin board, but it inspires my students to give me MORE effort in their writing. So here’s what we did today.
|Start with watercolors and talk about the sunset. Then allow your students to use yellow and orange to create a sunset picture. They have to fill in all the white space|
|But I do like the effect of the sponge bat! 🙂|

and finally it’s time to crack down and get those report cards done…I may have gotten myself a case of diet coke and possibly opened some Halloween candy a little early…..

LOVE that art project. I also love to incorporate as much art as possible for writing projects. I am so happy you posted this, as I am starting to talk about bats on Monday :). Thanks for sharing!!

LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE the art that goes along with the writing!! We, too, did lots of bat stuff this week, and of course a writing to go along with it – but I'm thinking that next year, I need to do this – or somehow incorporate it with our writing!
Super love the sunset with the bat. My kiddos are super duper artsy so something like this would be great to use with them:)

Woah! I LOVE the bat art project! I am NOT artsy but I bet that my kiddos could handle that! I can't wait to borrow it soon! Thanks for sharing! 😉 In another note- I love your new paper clip background. 🙂
Hello! I follow your blog and have used some of the ideas you've posted. I just had to laugh about the tisket tasket song, when you said the program is long gone, because my school is still using it. I do love that game and it is really helpful. I also do the wonder word game. I look forward to trying the art project this week. Thank you!
Wow, that art project is gorgeous and sooo creative! I love it!!
Love this art project. I think it's great to incorporate a creative art project with writing. It seems to get them really excited about it.
I love the song for word review!

LOVE it! It's beautiful!
Loved the song word review game, I teach 4 year old kindergarten so I will use as we work on identifying letters, shapes or numbers….I know they will love playing it, thanks for sharing. SueG
In one of your beginning of the year pictures I noticed that you had popcorn tubs. I just bought 2 today at Target in the dollar section 🙂 but am not really sure what to do with them? What do you do with yours? Thanks so much!

In the popcorn tubs I printed out popcorn words which are really just their sight words that should pop out of their mouth. I use them for guided reading and for word work. Another teacher gave her popcorn words as a freebie and had printed them each on a popcorn clip art. I used her words. There are many versions out there in bloggy land. A google image search should help you!
