Art Integration: Watercolor painting & Poetry

To wrap up our poetry unit I had my 2nd grade students illustrate the poems that had been writing.  While they were publishing their poems I had them plan areas of their pictures to include watercolor paint.  I have never seen them so focused on writing.  They were really excited to use the paints, and this led to them taking their time on their writing and adding extra details into their pictures.

I go the water color paints as a part of a Donors Choose project.
