We are very excited in Room 1 because we have started our first in-depth project where the children will be encouraged to study lines in artwork (and maybe beyond) and the tools that can be used to make lines. This project was inspired by some of the observations teachers have been making in the classroom. We will be hanging up the beginning of a documentation about this project in the hallway soon. We can’t wait for you to see it! You might get ideas for how to extend the learning into your own home, too.
To support the project, we are starting to take children to the art studio. This is just down the hall by the adult bathrooms. In the art studio, children will be working with art materials, the teachers, and children in Room 2. Our time to go to the art studio is at 8:30 a.m. Our drop-off period is from 8:15 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. We will attempt to take all children to the art studio, rotating who gets to explore lines, but children who are consistently late to school (arriving after 8:30 a.m.) may miss out on this opportunity. We have the first time slot of the day for the art studio so that the other classrooms can also use it during the morning program.
We also wanted to send out a quick reminder that school (and entire campus) will be closed on Tuesday, November 11.
We hope that you have a great day. It has been so warm out and tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer (they say)! Now is the time of year for layers, for sure!
See you all soon.
