We had a great week investigating the sense of touch. The students felt the different textures of feathers, sand, salt, rice, sandpaper, cotton balls and paper and then pasted them to make beautiful touch collages.
At circle we looked at “Vase with 12 Sunflowers” by Vincent Van Gogh and read a bit about the artist. After reading a bit about Van Gogh, and looking at some of his other paintings we set up the activity so they could draw their own sunflowers. They are looking beautiful! I’ll try to post some of the children’s drawings next week:
Our Friday friends enjoyed making footprint snowmen, reading “Harold and the Purple Crayon” and writing/drawing their own purple crayon adventure.
