Reindeer Drawings Kindergarten Art

This year I have found myself teaching art to two kindergarten classrooms. When I was asked to teach art I thought “sure, why not! I love crafts.” However, that it has not been the case. I have found out quickly that when you only have students once a week for 40 minutes it is almost impossible to do all the kindergarten crafts you did when you were a full time teacher

I am so very thankful that there are amazing art teachers on TpT. I have to give a huge shout out to First and Kinder Blue Skies! She has a wonderful Directed Drawing for the Entire School Year that has saved me!

This week for Christmas we did her reindeer directed drawing from her resource and they turned out incredible! We used oil pastels and colored construction paper. I am surprised how well these students do in art for only being 5 and 6!

Away in the Manger Craft

My students finished up their Away in the Manger Crafts this week in art. This is one of my favorite craftivitities with the kinders. It is a simple and quick prep lesson for anyone who works in a christian based school.

The following are pictures from last years class when I was a full time kindergarten teacher

In these pictures I was able to work in mall groups during centers and more time (hence the glitter.) 

Look at those little sneaky photo bombs! Top right and bottom left

These pictures are from this year.

In these pictures I had to organize the craftivity to do as a whole group since I am only with each kindergarten class for 45 minutes a week. You can see the difference between the art work. The current kindergarten teacher is planning on adding glitter during their center time.

You can download this craft for free with my Nativity Freebie
