Today Maren, Lane and Grace worked on trying to draw hopscotch again.
First they reflected on the first drawing a small group had made:
Next they reviewed the large format drawings that kids had completed in Blake Hall and compared those to the hopscotch that was constructed in the classroom.
Then they tried to draw new versions of hopscotch that would address some of their concerns about the one on the studio floor.
One big take away from today's work was the one we constructed on the studio floor needs revisions. Maren noted that the 4 and 5 squares, as well as the 14, 15, 16, and 17 squares don't follow the pattern because they are single squares one after the other. We need to ensure we can correctly depict the hopscotch board before beginning to create the final gift for Hyde Addison children.
More friends had turns with tracing today. Emilia opted to trace an elephant while Palmer and Fletcher traced trucks. Evelyn had another turn with tracing today as well. She noted, "Tracing is better than drawing unicorns."
At the easel, Wolf B and Cannon decided to have a go at painting gorillas. They used the image Cannon had traced yesterday for inspiration.
