Marching Towards Summer in Pre-K 2
Hello Pre K Families,
We had a wonderful week!
Here is what went on in the centers this week…
Art Center- On Monday and Tuesday, the children were asked to paint paper, with all different colors and then add texture to the painting by dragging different utensils over it. This is the effect that Author Eric Carle uses to illustrate his books. His technique uses tissue paper, but I have tried it in a classroom and little hands painting tissue can tear the tissue easily. I explained to the children that Mr. Carle paints the paper then traces something he drew onto the paper and cuts it out for his story. Wednesday and Thursday we traced different animals and scenery, to create an Eric Carle inspired work of art!! I love this project so much and the creations were amazing !
Easel- Very hungry caterpillars – paintings
Writing Table- Numbers 1-4
Books this week were all by Eric Carle. The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Mixed up Chameleon , A house for Hermit Crab and The Grouchy Ladybug.
*****Tuesday is our class talent show. I have told the children they can show us anything that they want, a song, a magic trick, a joke, a dance, karate move, instrument or bringing a toy and show us how it works. I am asking that NO stuffed animals come in for this one.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the warm weather1
