Welcome to KW, Luke!
We are so excited to have Luke with us in KW! Our friends were so excited for him to open his KW 'gift.'
"Finlay has an 'F' in his name. He's going to sit next to me because we both have F's in our name." - Frances
Experimenting with Shape and Line
Jade: "This is a rainbow catcher. It catches them in here (the middle). Then it gets twisted. Then the sun comes into the catcher and gets caught."
Bea studies balls of yarn in the Atelier. She uses a stencil with a variety of circle sizes.
Bea: "I'm making some of the circles the same. I used all the circles.
Jill: "Were you think about the balls of yarn we saw in the Atelier?
Lily: I'm making all of them connect!
Thank you so much to the family that donated this lovely jewelry. The children truly love the pieces. We have so many ideas for what we do do with them.
Lily: Can we sew with them?
Bea: Maybe we can make new jewelry with the pieces.
Jordan: How would you make new jewelry?
Bea: We could use wire!
Lily: Or sew new jewelry.
Before we create, however, we have to organize and investigate the jewelry.
Lucas: "We need the glue to work, work, work."
The changing of the seasons has always been interesting to KW. We took the opportunity to think more about it collaging with seasonal found materials. As we worked on our spatial awareness, pattern recognition and fine motor skills, We wondered about what makes something look like Fall and how could we tell.
Cate: I think my leaf was always yellow.
Frannie: I think my lead changed colors.
Bea: Are these fall colors?
Lily: I'm not sure. The brown not so much, maybe.
Bea: When you see these (shiny papers) you have to hold it.
Lily: These are the same materials we did with the the frame (for the light table compositions)
