ART WITH MS K

Chika Chika Boom Boom Paintings

Kinders experimented with water-color paint with their Chika Chika Boom Boom Paintings. We began by reading the infamous story.

The kids love this book and even knew the song from this video:

We began by practicing writing letters with bright colored crayons. They could draw uppercase and lowercase letters and use as many colors as they want! Then we broke out some brand spankin’ new water colors.

Kids discovered that if their brush was “thirsty” they would need to add more water and dip it in the paint again. Students used their knowledge of shapes to design a coconut tree. Some students even added the big yellow full moon from the end of the story.

The extra-curricular connection was successful in reinforcing letters, shapes, colors, and the alphabet! 🙂
