Perspective

Our curriculum map is set up to teach 1 point perspective in 3rd grade and 2 point perspective in 4th grade. Today we read "The Spider and the Fly" which the students loved even though I kept stopping the story to make them admire the drool-worthy illustrations of Tony DiTerlizzi.

Each class completed introductory practice pages last week of drawing boxes (3rd grade) and houses (4th grade). They will begin drawing their houses next week, after I show them some very cool Victorian homes. If the houses end up a bit spooky, well who can blame them?




















This is the current bulletin board for at-a-glance reinforcement of the concepts.
