I read from a story, The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle and along the way we stop to draw.
First we stopped to draw a fence to spin our web on. We began our web just as the spider did in the story and stopped along the way to weave more of our web. Students made insects in the web and finally their very busy spider.
Students can paint over oil pastels with watercolors to get this effect. Oil pastels on black paper also get the job done in less time! This is great to do with classes who need practice following directions. I was impressed with how engaged they were during this Read and Draw and how carefully they listened to the story and directions!
