While watching the Sochi winter Olympics, I noticed how bright and colorful the snowboards were. I thought it would be fun for the kindergarten class to design their own snowboards using their name as a design element.
Each student was given a large, snowboard shaped piece of poster board. To help get them started I wrote their name in large letters on the board. They were then instructed to add another line to their name making each letter ‘fat.’ The next step was to add shapes, lines and patterns and finally adding color with markers. Kindergarten had fun imagining they were snowboarding down the slopes.
