Harold and The Purple Crayon

Kindergarten began the year by learning about line.  We learned the poem Larry the Line which is about a snake who can twist his body into all different kind of lines.  We even got a visit from Larry himself!  After practicing drawing some lines, like vertical, horizontal, diagonal, curvy, spiral and zig zag, we read the story Harold and the Purple Crayon.  We noticed how Harold used all the lines we just discussed to create his pictures.  We also discussed how Harold did not draw on paper but right in the air!  Students then used purple yarn dipped in glue to create their own lines that hang in the air!
