Wordless Wednesday – Reading Art

Reading and interacting with art on the SMARTboard - finding and tracing shapes and lines on Kandinsky's work


    • Sure! I put a piece of art in Notebook (just copied and pasted from google images). We then played an “I spy…” game. So they said, for example, “I see a red circle behind a yellow triangle with 3 curved lines.” The other kids tried to guess where the child was looking – then the child came up to the smart board and traced over the shape (the red circle in my example) with the pens. I left the image on the board for our math stations as well – so kids could continue talking about the art, saying what they saw, and writing on top of the art. Does that make sense? Let me know if you’d like more explanation.
