There are just so many fun fall art projects. Directed drawings are one of my favorites.
|Directed drawing of Frankenstein that focuses on shapes.|
|Draw with pencil, trace lines with Sharpie markers and watercolor paint.|
|You can grab the cutting directions for making this project at Classroom Freebies Too.|
Thumbprint creatures are always fun too. These little Halloween counting books are so cute. All the creatures are done with thumbprints or fingerprints. We came up with ways to draw a variety of Halloween creatures after starting with a thumbprint (skeleton, witch, spider, pumpkin, jack-o-lantern, vampire, bat, ghost, Frankenstein). This makes a fun Work on Writing center for this time of year. Warning: Have everyone use a baby wipe in between colors.Creepy, Crawly Spiders
|Nine vampires drinking|
|Six scary spiders|
Spiders are a great way to start off with a little research. I love using a R.A.N. (Reading and Analyzing Nonfiction) chart to help us keep track of our spider knowledge.
|Draw the spider's body then add labels and even captions.|
|This is from my Cognitively Guided Instruction word problems with spiders.|
|And even a tasty spider! Use an Oreo, black licorice, mini M-n-M's and a little frosting as glue.|
