Penguin Painting ~ Home Art Studio Project

We have been using Home Art Studio for a long time now.  You can see all of the projects I have blogged about here! Home Art Studio sent us curriculum to review years ago and has been a blog sponsor ever since.  We love working with them and sharing Home Art Studio with you!

Penguin Art with Home Art Studio

For our most recent project, I actually jumped up to our 3rd grade dvd and chose “Penguins On Ice” after looking at the instructions.  I thought she could handle it and she did!

I completely enjoyed this project with her, which is rare for me.  She is really embracing the idea that art is creative and that everyone’s outcome is different.  Her attitude was fabulous and she smiled a lot. It hasn’t always been this way so I celebrate!

Her favorite part was learning the texturing technique taught by Ms. Volin in the video.  She thought this was so fun!

She practiced drawing penguins, and then practiced painting them.  She really enjoyed perfecting the types of penguins she wanted on her final piece.  Finally, she decided she liked what she had done and got to work on the final project!

She LOVED it, and so do I!  She kept saying, “make sure you tell the art teacher I’m only in 1st grade and I did the 3rd grade project!”  She cracks me up!

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter Z

RLRS Letter Z Romans 12 Bible Verse Printables

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter Z are available to download for free! Z is for ZEAL! This set is based on Romans 12:11, “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.” 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

Coloring ~  I love coloring time because it gives such a great opportunity for discussion, which we did a lot of for this verse.  While she colors I read her the story about the verse {included in the printable pack} and we discuss the meaning. I didn’t get a photo of her coloring, this is the page she colored.

Slide11

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying words and sounds she knows, as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter Z -0767

 

The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear her singing along in the video. The tune is “Happy Birthday.”

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.
