Cassie Stephens: The Dot College-Large Collaborative


Good day, pals! I am excited to share that the school-wide collaborative my first by fourth grade college students created at THE BEGINNING of the varsity 12 months (yikes!) is lastly put in. Like, lastly.

Y’all, whereas I do love having all college students making a collab in the beginning of the varsity 12 months, why do I do it to myself? It is a lot work on my finish! All of the attaching to bulletin board paper and hanging…it is a lot! AND I all the time procrastinate! And but I do it 12 months after 12 months. Such a glutton for punishment, I assume.

Here is a glance inside the method of hanging this beast with a few of my ideas:

When hanging one thing this heavy, it takes all the things in your software belt (in addition to a useful music teacherin’ good friend). Take a look at my tip on binder clips and lengthy tabs of paper. It helps!

I’ve not accomplished an official put up on how we created these dot work however I will let you know: it was tremendous simple! In reality, it is one in every of my fave kindergarten classes which you’ll be able to discover the small print on right here

All college students started with a dot in the midst of their paper. The paper was prefolded so that every dot was precisely within the center. Which means I quarter folded the paper, as soon as in half a technique after which in half the opposite. Dot was positioned on the intersection of these two folded strains. 

Just like the kidnergarten lesson, every scholar was then instructed to color concentric circles round their dot utilizing any colours of tempera paint they appreciated!

As soon as dry, the work have been minimize alongside these folded strains. They have been then rearranged and glued to a black piece of development paper. This half was difficult so college students helped each other. 

Early finishers painted the wording of the signal!

After which the beast was hung…the place it shall keep for a LONG, LONG time. Or the tip of the varsity 12 months the place I will have the scholars minimize it aside to take dwelling their circles (possibly. Or I could go away it up till subsequent 12 months!).
