Kindergarten stamping

First grade gadget printing
In the spring, in each of our first through fifth grade classes, we did a printmaking rotation. First and second grade did gadget printing, third grade did monoprinting, 4th grade did screen-printing, and 5th grade did styrofoam block printing. Kindergarten had been doing stamping all year, but in the spring we emphasized stamping patterns. Unfortunately, in the rush and changes of schedules at the end of the year, I did not get pictures of all of these activities.

At the end of the year, many of the students were anxious to finish their hand puppets and stuffed dolls. I was pleased to see how many of them made characters from stories, or created their own character that had a story to go with it. These are just a few of the ones made in 4th and 5th grade.
