Here's the photo from Pinterest...
We briefly discussed Monet and wrote his name in our Idea Books. I showed them some paintings of water lilies and we did a water lily sketch. Next we glued down strips of blue paper. I cut a bunch of different blues...
The trick to good waves is 3 dots of glue. One dot on each end of the strip, glue it down like a bridge and then one dot in the middle.
Here's my teacher sample....can't wait to do the water lilies next class!
Frog to reference
Link to Claude Monet document below:
I had my 3rd graders make Mother's Day cards awhile back and I showed them how to make the waterlilies and they turned out really well!
This was the lily pad that we decided would be a good card as is....they wrote a special message on the back.
