Kindergarten students made heart prints around Valentine's Day. We did this last year, but we decided to take the lesson a step further to incorporate tracing, cutting, and gluing skills and sewing! I was inspired by some of Cassie Stephens' lessons and decided to tackle yarn with kindergarten! I thought it would be a great introduction to sewing before first grade when we sew on burlap with yarn and a plastic needle. These hearts turned out beautifully and I will be displaying them at the kindergarten Mother's Day breakfast later this year.
I am an ninth year art teacher with degrees in Art Education from Flagler College and the University of Florida, living and working in northern Florida. Each week, I teach over six hundred students in grades kindergarten through fifth. Here you will find what we are learning virtually and in the art classroom!
