Even though I dislike OCR because it’s not suitable for special ed, I have to admit that I had so much fun a couple of weeks ago with the Picasso story in Open Court (3rd grade).
I am happy to announce that I will be switching to Voyager when I have training next week, and provided I can get the manual for it.
I planned on switching to Voyager, however, that 3 hour training turned into 1 1/2, which turned into 1 hour. I have yet to receive the manual. That’s a whole different story which I will save for another time. So, needless to say, I will not be starting Voyager.
N-e way, back to the lecture at hand, to pique the children’s interest, I printed some pictures of Picasso, along with some other famous artist to compare & contrast.
For another activity, we discussed the different styles of the various artists. Their assignment: Draw their version of the Picasso pictures. These were their choices:
“The Guitar Player”
We had so much fun. The other 3rd grade teacher next door wanted to do it.
This is what they came up with: (I will post the pictures later).
So until next time people!
