Daily 4 Art

Every once in a while, I like to throw an art component into the weekly Daily 4 choices.  I find a poem, quote, or short phrase and ask students to illustrate it.  Sometimes we talk about vocabulary, if I think there are words that would be completely unknown.  Like, "pirate's loot."  We read the quote and then draw away.  A chance to use the right side of our brains.
Our quote for the week
Some of them just looked at the word "pirate" and drew a whole pirate scene and others focused on books, or just treasure. 
Two islands:  Book land and Treasure Land

Love the pirate's feet!

Every island needs a tree of books.

This one is my favorite.  A giant book that looks like treasure.

Happy Sunday,
