Y'all my First Graders are just the cat's meow.
I mean, we've be movin' and a groovin' to some excellent 1920's jazz music.
See, we read a book about how Josephine Baker suffered racism in the United States and then moved to France so she could really shake her groove thang.
Then, we got to watch a video of Ms. Baker dancing with her shadow and even listened to some of her favorite music.
We were so inspired, we drew pictures of our own Jazz Babies just a moovin' and groovin' to some fine jazz music.
If this looks like fun something you hep cats might want to try out, head on over to my newly minted Teachers Pay Teachers for a FREE download of the full lesson plan (including objectives) and detailed how-to steps on how to draw a Jazz Baby in a suit and how to draw a Jazz Baby in a dress (I avoid boy and girl Jazz Babies because boys and girls can both rock killer suits and dresses!).

As a bonus, this is a great tie-in (and something new and different) to Black History Month
Until then, enjoy these awesome student works!
