Kindergarten Cardinals

I just love Kindergarten!  It's taken me a long time to say that.  When I first started at the elementary school I had such a hard time coming up with lesson plans for these 5 and 6 year olds.  Now I set up stations to keep them moving and busy.  They have a short attention span and are still developing their fine motor skills.  For these cardinals I demonstrated a step by step drawing and also gave them a step by step handout at the drawing station.  They outlined everything with crayon to create a resist for the watercolors at another station.  I set up two other stations, one with a coloring page and the other with puzzles.   Every bird is unique just like my students.
