|"Be Artistic!" What a great idea!!|
I started my presentation, by sitting with them and the book and talking with them about it. I did a quick recap of the plot and then we looked at the book from an artistic point of view. This was a good discussion in realism, pattern, line and repetition.
Then we got to work! I wasn't sure if the lesson would engage all of the students since I hadn't done this project with a group before (only my "test subjects" at home). It went VERY well! The project kept the children engaged the entire time and their words of wisdom were wonderful! There are some very wise second graders in Mrs. Bevilacqua's class!

|This one gives new meaning to "Rainbow Fish." Beautiful!|
|Some of these read: "Think Positively" and "Don't Lie"|
|"Have a Vivid Imagination," "Be Unique," and "Be Careful"|
