My Face: A Kindergarten Perspective

Submitted by julia.murray on

Mrs. Morgan's Kindergarten class had the opportunity to draw and color a self portrait.  Mrs. Morgan said, "I use it mostly to reinforce how even though we all have two eyes, a nose, a mouth, two ears, etc. no one looks just like us—we are all unique.  One of our social studies standards is to recognize differences and have respect for each individual.  We used mirrors to look at the colors and shapes of our features.  I taught them how to use shapes to form their faces and shoulders.  Then we used oil pastels to color our portraits.
