zENTANGLE HEARTS K-4
All grades started with a discussion of what Zentangle is. Just as Zentangle helps build hand-eye coordination in all people, its benefits are particularly effective for those in the process of rebuilding motor skills. Connecting, shading and forming a Zentangle image into a beautiful whole is peaceful, yet makes new ties in the mind that can be seen in everyday life. It is a form of structured doodling. We looked at examples of different Zentangle patterns and talked about adding lots of detail. The students spent a few days designing their Zentangle hearts and then they chose at least five words that make their heart happy to place around their Zentangle heart.
