Blanchard, Year One
Martin/Stafford – Beth Reeves
Learning Objective/Exit Outcomes:
- The student will be able to use past tense verbs properly in a sentence.
- Students will collaborate to create original, abstract artwork.
Conventions of Standard English ELAGSE3L1 Demonstrate command of the conventions of Standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
- Form and use the simple (e.g., I walked; I walk; I will walk) verb tenses
VA3.CR.2 Create works of art based on selected themes.
- Create works of art to express individual ideas, thoughts, and feelings from memory, imagination, and observation.
ELA & ART
- Sheet of paper
- As the teacher conducts Relay Drawing, students should be encouraged to create pictures that are creative and show that they understand present and past tense verbs, specifically creating pictures that shows a person/character doing an action (flying a kite, playing basketball, fishing, etc).
- As the facilitator begins a sentence, the students will draw a picture of what the charter, inanimate object, or person would look like using the verb tense.
- For instance, “I (ran) up the hill”. Students would have to draw how the person might look after that ran up the hill.
- They should also be encouraged to actually write the word “ran” next to their image. Or, “Sara (is walking) to the mall”.
- What would it look like if Sara was actually walking? Would her arms be moving? Would her legs be moving? How do we know in the picture that it is present tense?
Important questions to ask: What did you see us doing, individually and also as a group? What do you wonder we can do differently next time? Why? How might this strategy help us review for a test? Incorporate VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies). Include the questions; What is going on here? What makes you say that? What else do you see?
