Since I now have a Smart board, we created mini videos to explain each station. I wanted to post them, but I have been having lots of problems getting them to fully load. So here are the basics...
Station 1- Moon print- make a circle stencil with tag board and use white paint and sponges to fill it in.
Station 2- Hat print- print the edge of a piece of matt board in vertical and horizontal patterns in yellow paint over brown paper.
Station 3- Curled paper hands and folded hair (for time we took out folding the hair)- cut and curl/fold 2 rectangles of butterscotch paper.
Station 4- Crumple head- trace and cut out a circle of brown bag paper and crumple.
Station 5- Crayon rubbed sleeves- crayon rubbings over texture plates on 2 white rectangles
Station 6- Fabric patches- cut 3-4 fabric shapes
For the next class we read The Scarecrow's Hat by Ken Brown, then assembled the sleeves, head and hat. We focused a lot of proper use of glue and scissors.
For the last class, made the hat, assembled the parts and added details. The final step was making the crow for his head. They turned out great!
