Cats, 1st Grade

I have to say, I really hate cats as pets (sorry to anyone who really does like them). But, when I came across a cute cat project, again on, I couldn't pass it up. I did change it a bit, but the basic drawing of the cat came from her. I cannot resist early in the year doing step-by-step drawings with the kids because it really teaches them to follow along and to use their eyes to help them draw. They learn about size and proportion, and as I do more like this with them I can start to loosen the reigns later in the year. We used chalk to finish them up, the kids got super messy and LOVED it, and I think they are super cute. Just purrrrrfect. (Did I really just say that? Ohhh I am so elementary)
