This was our mission on Thursday. A small group started at the entry of the preschool and focused on the first two guardians that they encountered.
As children draw, they use a wide range of approaches. Some children will make a more imaginative representation of what they see, all the while enjoying the process of making a mark on the paper. Some children want to included every detail. For example, as Lily drew the preschool door and the human guardian, she included the keypad for opening the door saying, ""I only did 1,2,1,2." No matter how children choose to draw, it remains a way for them to express their thoughts and ideas.
Playing a New Game
While five children were drawing yesterday, everyone else chose to play "Memory" for the first time in KW. As they played, children had to remember to take turn, to focus on the cards other children turned over, and to keep each card is its place. The cards featured North America Wildlife and children enjoyed hearing the name of each animal represented. We'll be bringing the game out more often!
On our last day of KW before Thanksgiving, we worked on centerpieces. Our ginkgo clay vase was out of the kiln, so we filled it with branches and beautiful beads, fabric, buttons, and natural materials.
We also glazed our vase with the doily impressions. Children were please with how their vases looked since they've been fired.
Ford - It looks so good. My mom and dad won't believe it.
Cape - It's so beautiful. It looks like it comes from part of the world. Like Japan.
This and that...
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Thanksgiving!
