What 5 year old doesn’t love the book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom?!  With the JK class, I read that, along with The Alphabet Tree.  The students created multimedia trees of their own.  First, they painted with watercolors for the background.  Second, they used tempera paint to paint the trunk and branches.  Third, they cut out leaves for the tree.  And finally, they painted the alphabet onto the tree.

This project was a great way for the JK students to be introduced to the most common materials in the Art Studio, as well as routines of washing hands and cleaning up.

Here they are at work, painting the alphabet.
