a much loved art lesson

This art lesson is off the hook
in our classroom right now.
Seriously.
Everybody who's anybody
is busy making a mosaic during the work period.

If you're wondering how it's done,
just glue squares of foam
(construction paper would work, too)
onto a paper grid.
How simple is that?!
But it's fabulous -
because the child is improving
her fine motor skills

by using a paintbrush or a glue stick
(most choose the paintbrush method)
to stick a square
onto a paper grid.

Also, the child is developing his creativity
because he can make

whatever patterns he desires.
This lesson
could possibly be titled

Mosaic 101.

  2. That's great!!! I've been thinking of trying some gluing with my son but I don't know if he's old enough. Maybe I'll make this but with a grid of squares that are bigger. You have great ideas!!!
