FREE Worksheet for Early Finishers - Create a Silly Monster

Here's a freebie for you. Yay!!!  Early Finishers - Draw a Silly Monster.

A teacher can never have too many tricks up her sleeve, especially a substitute teacher.  Here is a fun activity that is suitable for a sub, an art teacher or a classroom teacher.  Early finishers will enjoy drawing this silly monster.  A sub would also enjoy having an activity to hand to students who need to occupy their time when their assignment is complete.  This is a fun activity to have on hand around Halloween, but could be used any time of the year.  There are sample drawings and choices for monster body parts, but students may invent the silly creature any way they wish.  The only supplies needed are pencils and crayons.

Head over to my TeachersPayTeachers shop: Art Sub Lessons to pick up one for yourself!

Art Sub Plan - Faux Stained Glass

Art Sub Plan

As a retired art teacher who subs, I appreciate being able to teach a lesson that will keep the students engaged and that will turn out well.  That lesson needs to be able to keep the kids interested for a whole class period.  This lesson from Crayola looks as though it will fit the bill. Check it out here:  Faux Stained Glass Art Lesson Plan

Art Sub Plan - Wayne Thiebaud

This is a video lesson I created 7 years ago.  ....Wow....7 years ago...... Anyway, if you can download this from YouTube, great!  Or, if you have access to YouTube, great as well.  All you or your sub needs to do is to play and project.  All the information and instructions are right in the video.  You pause when the video directs you too.  It is free too!  Yippee!

The lesson starts off with a bit of a biography of the artist and then goes into the directions for the drawing.   Check it out here:
