Ten Apples Up On Top

The students and I talked about how an object balances, and what balance is. They also listened to the story by Dr. Seuss, Ten Apples Up on Top. We also practiced drawing circles. Then they painted many red apple circles. We even had fun counting them afterwards. 😉

Garden Collages

Today the students are collaging using clips from garden magazines the parents donated. A fun way to strengthen their little hands and to properly learn how to use the scissors. This project also builds their composition skills. I also love seeing them light up when they recognize a plant or flowers from their gardens at home. -Mrs. Monica

Winter Village

The students had such a fun time with this art project…painting “snow” onto the village to create a winter wonderland. We also shared stories about playing in the snow and going to the mountains. Some of our friends haven’t experienced the snow. I encourage you to take a day trip to go see some snow. We are blessed to live near the mountains…. 😉

Dot Painting

I read the inspiring story, “The Dot,” by Peter Reynolds. It’s an inspiring story about art, not giving up, and seeing where art takes you. The students then painted their very own dot painting and expressed themselves based on the story. Enjoy!

Observational Drawing

The children sculpted a character using Play-Doh and used many different plastic parts such as arms, eyes, legs, nose, hat, mouth to add features to their creation. They then used their fun character to do an observational drawing. Such a fun and silly activity that teaches children to observe and draw their subject. It also builds imagination!

Preschool Chapel on a Rainy Day!

We had a fantastic time at our rainy day Christmas chapel! There is something especially cozy about watching the rain fall outside while worshiping together inside. We will praise the Lord in all weather! As the rain fell, we remembered the true meaning of Christmas while singing “Away in the Manger,” “Joy to the World” and reading from Luke 2 as well as a marvelous book titled “Bright Star, Bright Star.”  Jesus was and is the ultimate gift in all seasons. Thank you God for sending your son!

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was laying in the manger. Luke 2:16
