While I tend to lean more toward the artsy-style with projects I enjoy doing with my class so that they learn fundamental visual arts skills, I know that a simple craft can be just as fun to complete and also aids in developing fine motor skills in tiny hands. Last week, I did a quick Google search on my break before finding an image that inspired what we would create–fall wreaths, using construction paper and our hands for the shape! To add a little academics to our craft, I wrote fall words on the board for students to copy onto the pieces of their wreaths. Find some photos of last week’s art time below!
