Ok, I know I said I was going to be better at this blogging. I'm trying.
Here are our first grade pattern turtles. They did a great job. They start wtih a "how-to-draw" a turtle, following along step by step. Then they filled the turtle shell with all kinds of patterns. We did practice drawing patterns first (with the teacher). Then the students cut around their turtles and glued them to their favorite colored construction paper.
