Another Read Across America Art Lesson First Grade- Dancing Giraffes

Read Across America and Dr. Seuss were celebrated all week long with lots of fun activities all geared towards encouraging literacy!  So first graders were mostly finished with their Cool Hands Warm Heart Collages from February, so I got many of them started with the awesome Giraffe's Can't Dance art lesson that focuses on not just literacy (fluency because the story is adorable and it rhymes like Dr. Seuss) but also the principle of art- Rhythm and Movement and the element of art Value.  So I made the flipped video to show my first grade students during their art time. classes that brought iPads drew their giraffe on the ipad first and next art class will be drawing them on paper.
