Daffodils, the Trumpeters of  Spring

CAFE Objectives


C.  Create:  Students using tempera Paint will paint a daffodil.

A.  Articulate:  Students will discuss the lines, shapes/forms, colors, and textures they see in a still

                           life of real daffodils. 

F.   Finding Connections:  Students will discover how daffodils grow and the flower parts names:

                            bulb, roots, stem/stalk, petal, anther, sepal.

E.   Evaluate:   Students evaluate their art connecting their mind and heart to decide if they like or                                  do not like their art. Thumbs up= Terrific  Thumbs in the middle = Just okay

                            Thumbs down = Not so good. Then students are allowed to verbalize their decisions

                             and explain why.








By first watching the teacher talk about the lines on the daffodils, vertical, horizontal, curve, and then the shapes, watch this video to see how the artist draws those lines. Children can draw along. 




Enjoy a really cute read-a-loud, "That's not a Daffodil." JC Raulston Arboretum has great story time read alouds from the garden for younger students and you can subscribe to reicive their garden kits. 




Listen to William Wordsworth's poem, "Daffodils"  I wondered lonely as a Cloud....

Watch a cute video, Art with Mati and Dada  where they meet Berth Morisot and learn about her impressionist style and life in France.
