What is each seed?

Seeds were displayed on our light table today and children were encouraged to guess what they would grow into.

Paint Rubbings

The children experimented with the primary colours of paint and texture plates today. 

After dropping spoonfuls of colours onto their papers they were able to mix and create designs in the paint.

Butterfly Puzzle

Think a butterfly puzzle will bring spring weather any faster?

Daycare Dramatic Play Center

Did you know we have our very own daycare right now for any babies brought to our school?  The children have been so excited to bring their dolls from home for play in our new dramatic arts centre. 

The babies are going for walks, eating, drinking, being read to, and sleeping. 

If you have any baby materials that we might have or donate, it would be greatly appreciated. (E.g.,  empty formula containers, baby food jars). Also children wanting to bring dolls to school for play in this centre are invited to do so. 

Also we are hoping to play a guessing game with the children. Please send in a baby picture of your child. We will return it. Thank you!

Eric Carle inspired Art

One of our student's family members visited us this week to discuss Eric Carle's illustrations. 

We learned that Eric Carle liked to create textured paintings using various tools. 

We started our artwork by making our own textured paintings. 

Once our paintings dried we carefully ripped them into pieces that once assembled would become a bird. 

The results?  Stunning!

Textured Painting

In order to add a little excitement to our painting easel we decided to encourage texture in the artwork. These cups have quinoa added to them. 

The children thought it was interesting to see the 'bumpy' paint and observed the quinoa made the paint thick and more difficult to brush on the paper. 

The combination of colours and textures made some amazingly beautiful art!
