I have a few creative tasks to complete during this theme. One is for the children to write a Paul Jennings style 'quirky tale' another is to design a creative book cover ( similar to the fantastic designs used on various editions of Jenning's books) and another is a 'shocked face' portrait. ( An idea adapted from Pinterest ) I made one of my own this afternoon.( Photo below)
The children will take a 'selfie' ( they love doing that) and use it to draw a self portrait ( looking up, with a shocked look on their faces) they'll then 'dab' on water color paint on what would be their hairline and then using a straw 'blow' the paint out to resemble hair standing on end.
We'll see how it goes.
