|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• Today I will learn about LINE, PATTERN, and TEXTURE, so that I CAN create PAINTED PAPER using tempera paint, scraping tools, forks, sponges, swirls, dots, and even splatters of paint!
• Today I will learn about CONTRAST, so that I CAN select paint colors for my background that will make sure my seahorse stands out.
• Today I will learn about MIXED MEDIA, so that I CAN trace and cut my seahorse to a painted background. I will also add decorative details such as “googly” eyes, glitter, and sequins to have a mixture of materials to add visual interest.
We will watch a read aloud of the book, “Mister Seahorse” by Eric Carle. Read the book and I will point out all the wonderful illustrations and ask the children what colors they see in
