Fall/Thanksgiving Art Sub Lesson - Disguise a Turkey

turkey art sub lesson early finishers
Early Finishers - Art Activity for November
What is a sub or teacher to do when students finish their lesson early? That's the time when behavior problems often occur. So here is a fun and creative worksheet to have at hand for just that circumstance. This is based on a classic lesson in which students alter the appearance of a turkey to help him escape Thanksgiving dinner. This could be a great lead in for a Writers' Workshop lesson. The supplies needed for this worksheet are pencils and crayons or markers.

Art Sub Plan - Robots in Winter (or Christmas)

Here is a winter activity that  elementary kids will have fun creating. It was written so that it could be used as a winter drawing lesson for an art sub or as a learning center activity.

Students often ask if they can do a Christmas art lesson. This activity is geared as a winter activity, but the student could turn it into a Christmas one.

You can find it at the Teachers Pay Teachers store:Centers and Early Finishers.

Art Sub Plan - The Colorful Art of Bruce Gray

 Art Sub Plan - The Colorful Art of Bruce Gray

I just recently discovered the art of Bruce Gray and I am in love. 


He is mainly a sculptor, but paints as well. Check out his website here: brucegray.com

He has done a lot of work that has been featured on tv and in movies. You can see all about that on his site. You can also buy art right from him there! (I am going to have to save up to buy the pieces I really, really want, but he also has reproductions.)



He seems to be a good guy. On his site, he has some pages of student work that was inspired by his own work. I thought that was pretty cool that he would do that.


Anyway, I asked him if I could create an art lesson featuring his work and he said yes! What a nice guy. You can check that out at my TeachersPayTeachers shop: Art Sub Lessons.
