1st grade Rodeo ’16

For this year’s Rodeo, I’m challenging myself to have every single class in all of the grade levels working on something different so that there is more variety to pick from to be on display at the Alvin ISD Rodeo Show. All of the projects were selected based upon what the particular grade levels have already covered in previous projects.


Warm colored Sunsets: In these projects the 1st graders reviewed line, warm colors, and perspective. As well as learned proper painting techniques of painting a landscape.

Help! The Chickens are going to eat me!

In this project 1st grade reviewed vocabulary words such as background and foreground, and proper painting techniques. They also and learned what a worm’s eye view meant. (To be a ground level looking up. In this case, the viewer is quite literally the worm!)


Monoprint Sheep:

Learned a brand new medium called ink while they made monoprints for the first time! This is a crowd winner every time!

Great job 1st grade!!
