If you haven’t seen Beautiful Oops yet, you must find a copy and look at it.. It’s my favorite book ever!
The first graders looked at this book in class and then they were presented with a creative challenge. Each child chose a piece of colored paper with a hole in it. Holes of various sizes were pre-cut into papers of various colors. They had to figure out how to turn this “oops” piece of paper into a work of art. The process was the exciting part as the kids folded paper to make pop-outs, placed cellophane behind the hole and colored around the hole. Flaps, shapes and even black dot stickers were added to make a creative picture. I would love to see how other teachers would teach a similar project. Let me know if you decide to use this book for a project.
