In Kindergarten we had the most amazing outdoor experience on Thursday. With all this incredible snowfall, we rallied and went on a snowshoe adventure in skyline park. So many parents offered support to help make this outdoor experience possible! I’m so grateful for this loving, involved crew of families. We observed the snowfall, listened to the winter sounds, hiked up the hills, and coordinated our bodies to work with snowshoes. Our very own, Heather Schock, brought hot chocolate for all! We have used this experience in our final Narrative Writing piece in the classroom. Such an incredible celebration of experience and learning. Happy winter adventuring. In our Core Thematic time we are studying the Human Body. We are so excited to investigate a giant cow’s heart and have a discussion on how the heart works.
Kindergarten artists have been hard at work creating some whimsical drawings for their collaborative auction piece. Drawing from their imagination, then adding bright liquid watercolor, each student created their own design. These designs will then be put together onto a large canvas. Look for a bright whimsical sun when you come to view all student created artwork which will be available at our upcoming Celebration Gala.
In addition to the Gala art, the kindergarten class will be learning about perspective and design as they learn how to draw a castle. This project is connected to their classroom fairy tale unit. The castle drawings require patience, attention to line, and learning how to create depth perspective. When the drawing is completed, paying attention to detail such as brick design, window, door handles, flags, and so on, the students add watercolor paint and to turn then castles into bright cheery place like those you may find in a fairy tale!
