It's all about the process...
Next week we plan to make Mud Cookies we can eat!
The majority of our indoor time today was spent painting at the easel with the new colors we mixed yesterday. As it was such a small group of children today, we teachers took had an opportunity to observe the children's processes very closely. We practiced using sequence to look closely at the choices the children made as they worked.
Here's Sam's process in sequence captured by photographs the thoughts he vocalized as he worked:
Lou Lou's and Leigh's collaborative painting captured through illustrated and written notes and photographs:
Slowing down and seeing the children's processes in step-by-step sequences, we observe intention behind their decisions. Children express meaning and knowledge through each choice they make whether it is selecting a paint color or line of a brush stroke. It is also seen that they sometimes change their mind about the meaning of their representations.
