First graders worked on their fine motor skills in this lesson by first tracing around a template of the owl with a Sharpie.
Then using hand to eye coordination they followed along with the teacher example when we added details to the owl, and then they colored the backgrounds black with permanent marker.
Once they had finished with that, they used warm colors to color in the owls and leaves, finishing up with a metallic Sharpie and a quick lesson on how to draw stars. Always remembering, “NO WHITE SPACES!!!” Which is a phrase they’re allowed to yell in unison to remind each other to make their pictures complete.
