You have those moments were you are just so impressed with a child's work...ya gotta tell some one! Well, after e-mailing his mom...and stopping any teacher I saw in the hall....I decided I needed to share it with you as well. I was introducing colored pencils for the first time with my Kindergarten students. I just don't even want to deal with it first semester. The sharpening is really the issue with the K's. By now though...I feel they have a handle on it...and are ready for colored pencils. I showed them blending/mixing, and value before turning them loose! This student filled up his page with this drawing better than most...but the color really took me by surprise. He did such an amazing job with blending the red/pink in the center flower...and the yellow to red was looking so wonderful on the top right hand flower!!!
I can't wait for him to finish it up!!!!
