I'm finally getting another change to link up with Tara for this month's installment of Monday Made it!
It's been hard to get the motivation to make anything classroom-y, since I haven't been working this year, but this "home made it" could double for a school library. Being a teacher, I usually end up gifting books to all my friend's little ones. This year for birthdays, I decided to do something a little different. I still picked out three books for my little friend, but gave it a twist.
For this birthday, I picked out three of my favourite books, "Chester" by Melanie Watt, "The Pigeon Wants a Puppy" by Mo Willems, and "Click, Clack Moo" by Doreen Cronin. Then, I chose a picture or scene from the book and illustrated it, along with the title of the story. This could also be great (maybe on a smaller scale) for a classroom library. Without further ado, here are the finished products:
(Sorry for the crummy photos, took them with my phone)
I didn't think to take any "during" photos this time around, but basically I eyeballed them in pencil onto the canvas first and then painted. I think they turned out pretty well (except Chester is a little too yellow for me)!
Hope you like them! I hope to be back this week with a couple of freebie math games for you from that never-ending project I've been working on this year. It is finally done and put together. We present tomorrow (wish me luck)!
Have a great week, everyone! Go head over to Fourth Grade Frolics and link up!!
