This week we visited Alisa Webb, the BTSALP visual arts specialist at North Ogden and Hooper Elementary Schools. Alisa was at North Ogden this week and we got to see her present a lesson with kindergarten students, as they explored patterns and their initials. She had them write their initials in pencil, cover it with tape, and then paint over the tape (they were supposed to paint in a pattern). In a future lesson, the students (or Alisa) will remove the tape to reveal their initials. It was great seeing Ms. Webb in action, watching the classroom teacher assist Ms. Webb and the students, and seeing the kindergarteners work and learn!

She also had a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr quote created by found objects – it was really neat!!!

Ms. Webb introducing the lesson.  She broke down the lesson into smaller tasks.




Letters with curves can be tricky!  This student mastered cutting short pieces to cover the curved letters.



Students were asked to paint their paper with patterns.  Can you tell what their patterns were?





“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
