Revisiting Our Mosaic Work
Wow! How did you do this? - Remy
Franny and Wilder Finishing their mosaics with a new technique. Grouting by hand.
Children took a variety of approaches to message making. Jade started with a drawing and then added materials. Cape loved adding word from old greeting cards, especially the phrase, “merry Christmas.” He worked to create 3 messages on the first day. Frannie played materials, including glittery paper, for her message. In the message center, Lily and Bea worked with stencils to create messages full of letters. Many messages were intended for family members, so check your child’s cubby bag for the next few days.
In addition to collage work, several children elected to work with a needle and threat to make their holiday messages. We practiced our fine motor and sequential planning skills as we sewed today.
Cate: You can sew (materials) onto the back (of the base).
Lily: I'm so good at this
Baking with Jill: Persimmon Bread
One thing KW loves to do is cook. Today, we had the opportunity to make persimmon breads thanks to the wonderful Jill. Measuring, counting, fine motor, following directions, cause and effects. These are all important skills we worked on as we cooked. Plus, the end result is so satisfying.
Wilder: I wish we could taste it now!
Finlay: It's so temping!
Sorry Finlay and Wilder but you will have to wait until tomorrow. All good things to those who wait. But that's ok, the waiting just makes it taste better in the end.
