The first grade made silly colorful faces using shapes. Everyone started with a black piece of paper with a white circle drawn on it. We drew shapes for the eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, ears – every part of the face we could think of – with white colored pencil. Then, using crayons made especially for construction paper, we colored in our faces. Unlike regular crayons, these special crayons show up nice and bright on our black paper.
