Ink monsters

One of my first grade classes was a bit ahead of the others so we did this short excercise in creativity!  We started by reading the story Beautiful Oops and discussed how mistakes can be transformed into beautiful artworks.  Next, we looked at an artist who creates daily monsters out of his mistakes.  Check out the video below:
Finally students dripped their own ink on their papers and used a straw to blow it around.  We then used our imaginations and markers to transform them into our own monsters!!
