My kindergartners have been busy! They worked really hard on creating their self-portraits. I found a really great video on Pinterest of a teacher doing a step-by-step self-portrait with her class. http://pinterest.com/pin/30469734949975123/
We watched the video & did it step-by-step with her. I paused the video after every new thing she drew & talked about it with the students. I used my document camera to draw & the students could watch me. They drew theirs along with me. We had a few mirrors out on each table to the students to look in to check & see what they looked like.
Once it was all drawn out in pencil, we colored it in crayon. We paid particular attention to our skin color, our eye color, & our hair color. We used more than one color crayon if we needed to make a color we didn't have.
We also added details to our backgrounds to make them more exciting & less boring! Students could choose what to put int he background.
