Room 4 have completed their first Monet inspired artworks… seems very odd Monet and the Amazon.. let me explain the connection. There are giant lily pads in Amazonian lagoons. They’re so big that 2m caiman can rest on them without the lily pad sinking. Pretty awesome! I’m grateful to have access to interesting information that I can share with my students. #anorchidsview #monet #chloesclassroom #schoollife #teacherlife #specialeducation #grateful💖 

Chloe’s Penguin

This is a simple penguin craft activity that we did in class.

What you need:

  • paint
  • glitter
  • paint brush
  • art paper

What to do:

Paint a large white oval

Cover the oval with glitter. Shake off excess glitter before continuing.

Paint a small black circle (this will be the penguin’s head)

Paint a larger black oval around the white oval and add some wings.

Add an orange beak and grey feet.
