This morning, we had a gap of time before art. Normally we would have been doing ISTEP during that time, but today we have ISTEP after specials for some reason. I had the kids sit down on one side or the other of the dividers and write a description of the picture taped to the dividers. They have to use descriptors such as colors, shapes, and orientation on the page to explain to another partner exactly what to draw.
This afternoon, we'll swap papers and then it will be the kids' turn to draw what was described to them. I hadn't done this one in a long time, so I'll be interested to see how well the kids explained what to do.
