Grade 2 – Practice is Important – Printmaking

Standard

Second graders have spent many classes practicing how to create a print from their styrofoam printing plate.  This is called ‘pulling a print’, instead of ‘printing a print’.  Second graders had to keep their papers and printing plates still while printing, otherwise the prints they pulled would be smudged and blotchy.

It took a lot of focus, but the Studio Habits of Mind really help children remember the skills they needed to complete their work successfully.  The Studio Habits of Mind we focused on were engage & persist and develop craft.  

The reward for all their amazing practice was being allowed to print with multiple colors at one time.  Check out the images below to see the amazing work they did.  Also, if you visit Conant School, be sure to check out the work on display.  Students picked their best piece for display.
