Today with the grade 5’s, I decided to let them explore with different fonts, styles, colors, etc. They keep asking about our monthly subway art posters (virtue of the month) and how it is done and if they can try. We have tried wordle and even tagxedo (both great sites to check out!!!) but we haven’t tried subway art. We mostly see subway art on the computer and yes, it would be fun just the same to have students create them using some of the many programs out there such as picmonkey (the one I use), but I decided for today to have them do it hands on! I showed them various examples which demonstrated a number of different fonts they could choose from or colors and sizes etc. We brainstormed a bunch of great words in connection to the season and occasion – they came up with fantastic words, and this truly helped them get started! I will definitely take pictures of the finishing product and will post some in the next few days. Down below, I have included one of the examples shown to the grade 5’s in which they really liked and used many of the styles from! There’s still time left to squeeze in that fun and easy art activitity!
