Children and families also sent in messages and gifts. Thanks to all who made Elyse's celebration special!
We've been working for a long time on mosaics and the end is in sight! As the Tucker children filled the remaining sections with grout, we noted how adept and independent children have become with this experience. For example, Giacomo coached Jill on how thick to mix the grout. As children worked to fill in space with grout, Giacomo also repeated his advice, "Use the spoon for bigger spaces, and the knife for smaller spaces." As children continued their work, C.C. and Lochie took on the task of cleaning the grout off of the tile pieces. The results are stunning and we hope to have them hanging for all to appreciate next week!
Last week in the morning program, Tucker children made clay creations. This afternoon, children finished glazing them and they will be fired first thing Monday morning! We can't wait to see these treasures come out of the kiln.
As we have noted before, representational drawing is difficult. This week, both groups drew portraits of teachers. Since the beginning of the year, we have noticed children including more details and sense of proportion in their drawings. As we review the children's work, we had the following observations and questions.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
