Push Pin Geoboards

We put corkboard, pushpins, and elastics at our math center today. The children were interested in creating with the materials. They reized that they could create their own Geoboards with the tools.

Representing Ourselves in Clay

The children have been very interested in drawing self-portraits. We placed mirrors out on the table to encourage them to really observe their features and include them in their drawings. 

The children were eager to discuss their similarities and differences so we read a book about diversity. 

This lead to great discussions regarding the uniqueness of individuals and how everyone is special! Because the children have been working actively with sculpting this week (check out these awesome animals!!) we challenged them to create a self-portrait sculpture. 

Our children amaze us each day! Check these sculptures out!
