Kindergarten students created these beautiful winter trees.
They used tissue paper to bleed color onto a paper that was cut into triangles. A blue watercolor sky was added to snowy white paper. The students and I talked about how size of something can make it look like it's farther back or closer in a picture. Large things appear closer and smaller things appear farther away.
They glued three trees, one small, medium, and larger onto their snowy landscape. Some gold tempera paint added some sparkle to their trees - and is fun to paint with!
Then students had fun watching me make it snow in their picture by spattering white paint on it.

Washington has been my "Home" school for many years now. I enjoy teaching all the different students who make up this diverse school. I have taught a multitude of lessons in this building and have learned just as much from all of the students.
