Day 3: Today Elise practiced cutting, by cutting out feathers for a turkey. She loves cutting papers into bits, but wasn't interested in cutting along the line. I ended up cutting out most of the feathers. Anywhoo, she practiced writing her letters on the back, and plans to send her beautiful piece of art to her Great Grandma. We read The Ox Cart Man. I LOVE that book! So did Elise. What a great story with beautiful illustrations!
Here's what Elise did while I was teaching Millie this week:
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I really need to up the ante our art/handcrafts/PE department. I must pat myself on the back this week, as we covered all of them! For art, we went to the Children's Museum art room to do a little finger painting. Elise painted a little bit (I mean a really little bit), until she discovered the sensory bin, filled with shaving cream and gourds. Great fun! For handicrafts, we made wooden spoon puppets. Last but not least, the girls started Learn To Skate. Elise is moving around like crazy on the ice. I'm really proud of her!!!
Most of my inspiration for this week's preschool came from Wee Folk Art.
