Drawings of Fly Guy

We are spending the last few weeks of school, revisiting some of our favorite books.  As we do, we are making crafts about the books; something we normally do not have time to do. Today, we read Ride, Fly Guy, Ride.  I quickly showed them how to draw Fly Guy.  We also discovered that if we change the placement of his eye lids and eyes, the expression changes.  The kids really liked this trick.  

Here are a few examples in various stages of completion.
I love the expression on his face.
Look at the smirk.

Did you notice Fly Guy's eyes are hearts.
He is in love!

Here is a more completed picture.
We used a black Sharpie to complete it.

It was a great way to spend the afternoon.  Kids learn so much from guided drawing lessons.

Happy Teaching and Learning!
