KidPix is the original art program for kids. It combines art tools, graphic capability, ease of use, all to inspire creativity and learning. This project introduces it tools.
A holiday card–in KidPix
Create a holiday card using KidPix tools like paint brush, pencil, fills and text.
Four-sentence story–advanced–in KidPix, PowerPoint
Write and illustrate a story, with all the characteristics of good fiction. One sentence per slide, and then turn it into a slideshow. This is a perennial favorite at my school. Students share the slideshow with parents at Open House (using Project 65–My Projects in PowerPoint) and parents are always amazed at what their children can do!
What does a Dolch Word look like?
Have students type three or four of their site/spelling words into KidPix. Create a quasi-sentence, filling in the missing nouns, verbs, etc., with stamps from KidPix toolbars.
Using Shape in KidPix Holiday Cards
Create a holiday card using shapes and various mediums (pencils, paint brushes, fills, etc.)
