September Art...With Book Connections!

Pete helped us with shape recognition on the third day of school, back in August.  We had read about his shoes, 
his school, and his buttons!  
Like the rest of Kindergartendom, we love Pete!

Watercolor Crayon Resist~ABCs
Book Connection:  Alphabet City
The photo below shows a wide range of ability!
Covering the entire page with watercolor was one of our goals.

Paper & Paint~Construction Zone
Book Connection:  Tip, Tip, Dig, Dig
(Our creations looked soooo much like the illustrations;
the children enjoyed being part of the story!)

Cow Glyphs
Book Connection:  How To Speak Moo
Silly Face Magazine Collage
Book Connection:  The Way I Feel
Q-Tip Painted Fall Tree
Book Connection:  The Apple Tree's Discovery
While the children worked on their projects, I passed an apple that had been cut crosswise, to show the star in the center.
This is a story of an apple tree who asks God to put stars in its branches.  Through the seasons, God points out the amazing gifts the tree possesses, while telling the tree to be patient.
It is a beautiful book!  


  1. I love all your art, Chrissy, but especially those cow glyphs!
