Kandinsky Circles

Kindergartners were able to practice many skills with this project! We began by using the smartboard and Kandinsky's painting Concentric Circles. I had students use the pen and trace over all of the circles from the famous work of art. Then we watched some video clips about shapes from Sesame Street on You Tube.  We also read The Dot. Next, they used colored squares of paper to draw all different sizes of circles. Finally, they used scissors and ONE dot of glue to create their own circle compositions. This lesson took us two 55 minute class periods.
