It’s so good to be back to school-and the children look happy to be back too!
Next week, In the kitchen, we will be painting with ice and doing a science experiment with ice and oil. In the block room, we will be jumping ropes and playing a listening bingo game.
I wanted to quickly remind parents when they are working either in the art area or when helping with small group projects, the children are just learning to use the materials. Experimentation is the best scenario for learning. There is no wrong or right way to create art. Please try to refrain from asking what they are making or even judging their art as good or encouraging them to do more -(It maybe just the way they like it).
If you really feel like you need to say something, say a fact like,”Wow, look at all that yellow”or” You made straight lines and curvy lines”
If you have more questions about this, please reply or ask me at school, I will explain more about how the wrong comments can stifle the creative process.
*Please remember to bring in your child’s baby picture between the ages of 6mos.-1 year-ish. I can’t start the game until I get everyone’s.
