Same prep - two projects! To help out the K's and 1's, we drew a triangle on their page to guide the edge of the tree. We also traced the stars so that they could simply cut them out. The focus of this lesson was positive space and negative space. We talked about how in the first tree our eye is drawn to the tree, whereas in the second tree our eye is drawn to what is happening behind the tre.
