Rainbow Words of Gratitude

I love this project for the beginning of the year- it's a fairly straightforward project which gives wonderfully colorful results. You can also get a good idea of each students level if you have new students. I call these "Rainbow Words of Gratitude" but you could change the theme of the words to anything you want. Students' names, favourite subjects, etc. You could also teach colour theory with this lesson- having students choose warm or cool colours, analagous colours or complementary colours. So many possibilities.

I found the lesson on the Incredible Art Department website HERE and modified it a tad.

Students in Grades 4 - 6 had to think of something they were grateful for in their lives. They folded a sheet of 8.5 x 14" (legal sized photocopy paper) paper in half horizontally. They printed the word nice and large on the paper then outlined it using a black marker. Do this step nice and bold.  

Then they chose colours they wanted to use around the word. 
Trace around each letter with one colour, then move on to the next colour 
until there is no white space left.

These are fantastic works of your students, and what they listed as somethings that they are thankful for are lovely and inspiring. Studies have shown that individuals who acknowledge things that they are thankful for are healthier and happier. Kudos to a great teacher who encourage children to be grateful and mindful.
