Georgia O'Keeffe Art Project and Writing Piece (Flash Giveaway!)

First of all, I'm loving the flash giveaways that I'm doing with my new products, so be sure to keep your eyes open for a lot more of those!

Second of all, one of my favorite art units is coming up... Georgia O'Keeffe.  Each year I teach my kindergarten students about her, and they learn how she created such beautiful images of flowers.  They are always inspired by her work and love using colored pencils to try to be an artist just like her!  After their artwork is done, I have them do a follow up writing piece describing their flower or trying to convince someone to plant their flower in their garden.  It's always adorable to see what they write!

I finally made the project a little cuter and posted it up on TPT.  Be sure to check it out by clicking the picture below!


Now for the flash giveaway... guess which month I teach this unit in!  Leave a comment with your answer and email address!
Update 10:00pm: I teach this unit in April!  Congrats to all of the winners!


While you're here, be sure to vote on the poll in the top right to pick what I will blog about this Tuesday!

  1. I will say May.... But it also could be March the month she died. :( I love her style and have a big book, (coffee table book) that my student trace pictures from.

    This looks so fun!
    Hope I am correct.

  11. I'm guessing April, since you said it's coming up. The link didn't work for me. I just got the picture. Not your store. I'll search for it in your store.

  13. Well, we are doing plants for the next 2 weeks, so maybe you are going to do Georgia O'Keeffe then too - April. That way the kids can see something grow before the end of school. (I am also torn with - April showers bring May flowers.)
