2nd Grade Illuminated Bible Verses

For their auction book, the 2nd grade students created illuminated bible verses.  A few dedicated moms developed the idea and drafted up the verses for us.  We began by talking about illuminated manuscripts, and how all bibles used to be written and illustrated by hand.  To mimic these works of art, the students each created a fanciful first letter for the verse with colored pencil.  After coloring in their letters, they designed a border that matched.  The project was a big success in large part thanks to our parent volunteers.  I look forward to seeing the finished product.
