Lucas: "I'm going to make a purple dog. I don't know what his name is."
One of Kw's newest interests is making animals out of paper. After making air planes previously, we wondered what other kinds of things we could make. That inspired us to look up some origami designs and learn how to make animals. This week, we used our fine motor, problem solving and focus to make penguins and dogs.
As we fold and create our animals, our kindness shines through as much as our creativity
Capers: How do I crease it?
Wilder: I can show you.
Wilder demonstrates how to fold and crease the origami paper for Caper
Capers: This penguin is eating good food.
Jade: I love it!
Capers: I have a silly idea. Button belly!
Capers glues a button onto the penguin as a belly button
Capers: I couldn't get it to stand up but now it stands!

Additional paper folding experiences were available at the light table.
How do You Make a Pattern?
KW friends have been working on pattern recognition recently. Using a variety of different materials, we have designed intricate patterns and designs. Each of the children focused on design, repeating patterns, colors, matching and layout.
