Mondrian Squares

Piet Mondrian (2nd grade)











YAY! I am very excited because I am officially posting my first lessons. My second grade learned about the Primary colors and the artist Piet Mondrian. I love the individuality of this lesson. They all turned out amazing and it was a huge confidence boost for their first year teacher (myself). We started out the lesson with a review on the primary colors (I say review, but none of my students knew the primary colors by second grade... good thing I'm here). After I introduced the students to the primary colors I showed them the work of Piet Mondrian. We talked about the use of colors and the formation of squares and rectangles. I forget which blog I got this idea from, but thank you. The lesson allowed me to introduce basic colors, painting skills, ruler skills, and gluing skills = Awesome lesson. My second graders loved how they turned out. Lesson plan (I will be providing the lesson plans I turn in every week to my principal in hope that I can help new teachers).
