Kindergarten and First Grade Christmas Ornaments

Our kindergarteners and first graders make Christmas ornaments each year to send home. This year the teachers in these grades wanted to take advantage of the Lab so we came up with these two ideas.

The kindergarten students would draw their card on 3x5 cards. We brought them into the Lab, scanned them and I put them on the computer. We laser cut them out and the students took them back to their classroom to color and put their pictures on the back with "Mod Podge"

In first grade, we stared to get a little more "high tech." In computer class, the students worked with KidPix to design their ornament. Our computer teacher, Mr. Sue, printed each picture out in black and white. Next, I went into each classroom and using the iPad, had each student come up and use Vectorize It by Autodesk. This app allows the students to take a picture of their design, crop it, edit it and turn it into a vectored drawing. Then I put the drawings on the computer and laser cut them.
