We absolutely love Simon
in our art room!
1. I put on Simon's "how to draw Simon's cat" video
2. We use this handout to help.
3. We watch, pause, draw, repeat.
This video is perfect to watch before our break for Thanksgiving. View it below or here.
This is a fun app with multiple uses. You can play a "meow song" where each note makes Simon meow, or you can use it as a memory game. The notes play and you have to repeat it. My students had so much fun trying this game last year. I plan on pulling it out with my first graders when we complete our art project today. The app sharpens listening and watching skills. It's naturally rewards the careful listeners. Love that!
See the two ways we use the app in the videos below.
