With our kindergartners, we read a story about Miss O'Keefe. We then painted poppies. Each student was given a sheet of paper with a small squirt of red and orange in the middle. They then used their brush to spread the paint from the middle of the paper outward. After it dried, they cut out black circles and small black rectangles. They then glued the black circle in the center of their flower before curling their black rectangles around a pencil. These were glued to the black circle.
