|Awww, our newest addition joined us June 10, 2013!|
As I'm sure you can tell, he's a wonderful, sweet and perfect little guy!
|Pile of 12+ year old E-Z cut.|
|Here you can see the E-Z cut covered with old ghost images,|
and the Mr. Sketch markers we use for this project.
Students draw images (no words or numbers) directly on the E-Z cut with water-based markers,
then use a pencil (AWAY from my precious E-Z cut) to write their name in the corner of the small white paper. They then return to their seat and hold their E-Z cut above their head, which is the visual clue for me to come lightly spritz their white paper (that's on the table in front of them) with water from my handy-dandy spray bottle. The student then says their ABCs slowly, giving the water time to soak into the paper. They then press their image onto the damp paper and make their print.
While the print is drying, they go to the clean-up table to wipe their image off and begin again. Students usually have 5-10 prints to take home that day. With all the craziness at the end of the school year, I really LOVE this project. It's a little crazy with all the up and all over the room, but you're really never going to rein all that anticipation of summer in, so just go along with it. That's my motto, anyway!
