A great first painting project for Kindergarteners.

Click here to view video on YouTube
Step 1:  Read to the students "The Dot" By James H. Reynolds.  Then tell the students that they are going to paint just like Vashi did in the story.  
Step 2: Set up the paints, paint cups and brushes.  This might be a good time to model to the student how you want the paints passed out and set up.  
Step 3: Show the video to the students. 
Step 4: Pass out the paper to the students.  Have them put their name on the back of the paper, or you can have it written on the paper by an adult ahead of time.  Once their name is on the back they can start making their dots on the front.  The painting time should be limited to 15-20 minutes.
Step 5: Model how you would like the paints and paintings to be put away.  This is the time to practice the clean up procedure.
