2nd grade Kind chalk hearts
I saw this idea on Cassie Stephen's website and just loved the idea, the production and the contemporary artists she references. Now, my second graders also know about James Goldcrown (jgoldcrown). We looked at his super cool art and then made overlapping hearts using chalk pastels. Next, the students brainstormed adjectives for the word "kind". Once they chose their favorite, they practiced writing it in different ways (like a computer has different fonts). They chose their final, favorite word and replicated it on large neon paper which was glued on top of the pastel hearts. How lovely!
