Nouns are naming words

Last week we finally got some artwork up on our back wall - even if it was only a simple task!
Teaching only two days a week is really chewing into my time for art and finishing things off.
Since the students have been learning about nouns in English, we made a "picture dictionary" on the wall. Each child nominated a noun (something they might be able to draw) and they used black permanent marker to draw the outline on cartridge paper. Next they used water colours to fill in the spaces.

They glued the noun word onto their artwork once it was dry.
I hope this display might be useful for them when they are writing as they now have a bank of words from which to choose. And maybe they will remember what a noun is as a bonus!
