Mother day final pictures

Final pictures of first Graders Mother pictures!! Love them!!

Mothers Day pictures

This lesson is one that makes me smile every day.  First grade students draw a LARGE picture of their mother or special person.  We discuss what Mom looks like when she is going out somewhere special, not the 6:00 a.m Mom or the having a garage sale Mom but how does Mom look different on a special occasion.
The students use a large pizza cardboard to get the large shape. I remind them that Mom's head isn't really a circle like Charlie Brown so they use the upper half of the cardboard and then work to a smaller curve on the chin.  First in pencil, then trace their lines in Craypas. We then choose the flesh tone that matches Mom's skin.
