Winter Mural Parts :K-4th



Every year... on these two odd days before Thanksgiving Break...I do a winter mural with my students. I don't want two days worth of students to be a week ahead of everyone else...so this is a fun solution to that issue.  Each grade level creates the "parts" that go into the finished mural. 
  • Kindergarten created the collage pine trees..and used construction paper crayons to add "snow".
  • 1st grade created the collage cardinals and used red & black Sharpies to add the details. 


  • 2nd grade did fabric weaving last week...so I had them create paper weaving & add snow flakes using construction paper crayons.
  • 3rd grade attempted shading winter branches with tempera paint (SOME did really well!) 


  • 4th grade created winter trees in collage..and then shaded using tempera paint (once again..SOME did really well) 

CAN YOU PICTURE WHAT THE MURAL IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE?!?!?  
Stay tuned!!!!
