We read a wonderful story this week in Writer's Workshop called The Colors of Us by Karen Katz. It is a beautiful story that celebrates the similarities and differences in children.
In Writer's Workshop, we are learning how to sketch faces of people. Ms. Kieltyka modeled for us, using Nardos as her model.
We watched very carefully while Ms. Kieltyka did her best to sketch Nardos' face. Then it was our turn to try. We got to sketch Mrs. Radermacher!
This was such a fun lesson. We learned that we really just need to do the best we can, and move on. We had fun focusing on the details of our models and sketching them, too!
