Art Class “Catch Up Day”

IMG_2269

I often teach multi-week projects, so after a several weeks, students are usually at different stages of completion. I sort finished work as students complete it, and then when a projects is about to wind down I make time for a “finish up day.” I have been thinking of ways to make this day a little more fun and memorable. I have seen this ketchup bottle idea posed on Pinterest and various blogs, so decided to make my own ketchup “catch up” bottle. (I mostly used this image and this image for inspiration.) I had recently taught a few one day structure/drawing lessons to my kindergarten students, so on day three, students had time to focus on finishing up their two drawing assignments and any other unfinished work they had from the year. Students who were done with all of their assignments got to work independently in their sketchbooks. I wasn’t sure if my 5 and 6 year olds were going to get the joke, but a lot of them thought it was funny. 🙂

How do you incorporate playfulness into your teaching?
