5th Grade Sock Monsters

This is my first try at making a "Sock Monster", and I am not sure that I am done with it.  The other art teacher I work with is going to be making these with her 5th graders, but I am not sold on the idea yet.  I think it is going to be a bit hard for them to take a sock and cut it all up and sew it all back together and make something out of it.  I know mine looks very ruff. If any one has any thoughts on this I or have done something like this I would love to hear them.. thanks..

5th Grade Deconstructing Still-Life by Eating

I found this lesson on Art for Small Hands, and I really enjoyed the way it look so Thank you.  I did change a few things we used water color pencil instead of marker.  Then we cut out each drawing and glued it to a black background.  I let the students pick if they wanted their picture to go vertical or horizontal.  Also I gave my students homework for this project it was super easy all they had to do was bring in a piece of fruit they like to eat so they could draw it.  They all really enjoy this project.

1st Grade Fall Landscapes

I saw this project somewhere else on the web many years ago, but I am not sure where anymore sorry.  I really seem to enjoy doing with my 1st graders.  I teach it with oil pastels, we also talk about highlights and shadows on an object. It is a great way to show (foreground, midground and background) with the pumkins.
