To continue our trip around the world for our Multicultural Fair, I worked with the Ukraine with one of my kinder classes.
|Mine, and it's not fully symmetrical since it's not centered on the paper...oops!|
I've done art from the Ukraine before with a 2nd grade class last, year, we did paper crayon resist watercolor Pisanki Eggs. They were CUTE! I didn't think kinder would grasp that concept too well as drawing with white crayon on white paper freaks them out a little since they can't see just what they are drawing (it freaked the 2nd graders out, as well!) You can find a brief history here if you're interested.
This year, I decided that paper cutting was the way to go! So Wyncinaki it was! Since roosters seemed to be EVERYWHERE, a rooster it was as well. I drew the rooster so that when the paper was folded and cut, we'd end up with the symmetry Wincinaki is famous for. I copied it on black paper. Most of my kinders were successful with the folding and cutting, I was surprised to find. We then glued that bad boy onto a large paper and let dry. The next class time, we added the combs and wings.
