It has been great to be back with all of your kids and to meet all of the new students. Since 3rd and 4/5th have art on Mondays I haven’t seen them yet.
We started off in Beginners talking about color. What their favorite ones are and which are their second favorites. They did a sample page of coloring so that at the end of the year we can see how much their fine motor skills have progressed. The second day we read a book about underwater fantasy lands and they all created pictures of the sea from their imaginations.
In Pre-K and K we did a similar worksheet to set a bar in watching our skills. We also read this amazing book Flotsam by David Wiesner. He has dreamt up an underwater world that spins everyone’s creative wheels. After reading it they did crayon drawings of underwater worlds and we will watercolor them next week.
The 1st and 2nd graders had Art once this week. We did a quick worksheet on color and shapes and then they did free drawing of memories from this summer. Next week we will dive into the underwater world as well.
