It is lovely to see the children engaging eagerly in activities with each other and also with the other adults present. They are growing into a wonderful community of learners!
Here is a selection of photos from the last time we were together.
Materials Explorations Continued
This week we explored different textures. We sprayed watercolor on crinkly paper, painted on slick plastic and taped and drew on bumpy (and very sparkly) paper.
We also explored printmaking with tubes and cork on cardstock and really loved the bubble effect the tubes created!
We built with blocks and tubes and had a ball playing with bouncy balls on a large ramp outside of the classroom.
This week was about exploring common items in creative ways.
We drew on boxes and cardboard and had a table dedicated to tape. The children loved playing with the different colors, sizes and stickiness of our many tape rolls. They also explored taping different types and textures of fabrics and sometimes just had fun seeing how long the tape could get.
On the easels, we switched from dark paint on light paper to light paint on dark paper for a different contrast.
We had a table to explore cutting many different types of paper and ribbon.
Our tubes, boxes and balls provided numerous ways to create slides, pathways and tunnels and explore motion.
