Kindergarten Dinosaurs

Dino-Mite Dinosaurs 

First, we drew some of the dinosaur parts and painted them using cardboard and straws. This was a great way to create the rough texture of the dinosaur's skin.

Next, we added details such as legs and plates.

We also created a fun place for our dinosaur to live.

The students loved adding the lava and making the volcano erupt!

Wow! Kindergarten students' created super stegosauruses!

Family Art Night

Family Art Night: Native American Art 

Students and parents created bean mosaics featuring Native American symbols.

They loved learning the meaning for each symbol. 

tepee = home

crossed arrows = friendship

arrow = protection

broken arrow = peace

horse = trip

Thunderbird = happiness

eagle = freedom

snake = wisdom 

 This student is carefully gluing down the beans to create a Thunderbird. 

Parents and students enjoyed creating art together. 

 We used oil pastels to add more symbols to the background. 

The students are very proud of their work!
