Meme, a retired art teacher, came to visit our class and do an art project with us. First she introduced the project by reading us the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom:
Then we moved to the tables and Meme showed us the paint sticks we would use. The paints sticks were a new material for us. Meme explained that she chose them because they dry very quickly.
Meme showed us how to use the paints to make a line, a squiggle or a shape.
All the children chose a colored piece of paper and we talked about letters and which letter their name starts with. The Morahs used painters tape to make everyone's first initial on their paper. This was good practice of letter recognition. Then we decorated the paper with lines, squiggles and shapes using the paint sticks. We tried to fill up as much of the paper as possible, especially the space outlining the letter.
Then we got to choose 4 baubles for the corners, our options were pom poms, buttons or gems. We glued them onto the corners.
The Morahs peeled off the painters tape slowly and suddenly, we could see the first letter of our names'. It seemed magical!
Thank you Meme for visiting our class and doing art with us. Please come again!
We love having special guests.
Would you like to be a special guests in KB-3?
