Wonderings about Wood
This afternoon we reviewed, (or revisited for those who were here yesterday,) our projections for March. This of course included the introduction of our Wood Workshop and continuation of work with book art and painting. Children once again had the opportunity to share thoughts and wonderings about the Wood Workshop. Children examined samples of wood as they talked:
After the discussion, many of the children chose to build with the wood pieces, further exploring their ideas and concepts about wood and what can be made with wood.
Lou Lou and Louise also worked with handmade books. Instead of each working on their own book, the children chose to work together on Louise's book. Louise noticed the photo of her Rodarte drawing had fallen out of her book. So she devised a way to fix it. She and Lou Lou decided Lou Lou would add some writing on the back of it. Louise didn't want to cover Lou Lou's writing by gluing it down on the page, so Jessica showed Louise a way of taping the drawing in that created a new page of sorts to Louise's book. Lou Lou continued to make messages to include in Louise's book.
Print-making was offered as another option today, specifically bubble wrap and dendritic printing for those who hadn't yet the chance (or wanted to again!) try these forms of prints. The children gathered around with great anticipation to see each print come to life when the glass or paper was lifted.
