Students divided a 12"x18" sheet of drawing paper into quadrants and used markers and colored pencils to record images that came to mind as they listened to each selection. I am always impressed by the consistency from year to year as 2nd graders recognize themes that are scary, silly, or proud and important-sounding.
1. The Gnome
2. Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks
3. Baba Yaga: The Hut on Fowl's Legs
4. The Great Gate of Kiev
Here are some of the results! I encouraged the students to write descriptions of their work, but as we had about 5 minutes to work on each drawing, our spelling was a bit rushed!
