November 2014

November has been a busy month-the preschoolers wrote and illustrated a classroom family book.  Each child illustrated a page to be added to the book.  We took a trip to the library to choose books for our classroom.  Our collection of natural materials was used to create collages on art canvases.  We also explored vegetables-used vegetable vocabulary cards -as we drew pictures and wrote the names of each vegetable.  The children painted using elastics-listening to the sound the elastic made and seeing the spatter of paint when we plucked each "cord".  

Music is all around us-as we create our own instruments out of recyclables, learned how to use claves, and learned ballet steps.
