Homecoming! How to Draw a Wildcat

(Photo from gliddeniowa.com)
Its Homecoming week!  We are a PreK-12 school housed all in one building, which is a rarity in today’s world.  While this sometimes provides challenges, there are a lot of benefits to our students.  One neat aspect is the cohesiveness we have in our building.  We are truly a family - as a staff and as a student body - looking out for each other. 

So when Homecoming rolls around, its not just the junior high and high school students that get fired up...the elementary students like to participate too!  One way to help them feel included is to do a homecoming themed art project in each upper elementary class (4th, 5th and 6th) that we can display around the school.

For the fourth graders, we start by learning how to draw our Wildcat logo.  They think it is so cool to be able to draw this - it then begins to show up on folders and notes and other random bits of paper.  This handout can also be brought out and referred to in older classes in case they forget...but it all starts right here in fourth grade.

This year we used those wildcat logos on Homecoming pennants. GO CATS!!
