Every single time we are given a task that deals with art, we talk about details, space and planning. These are skills that will serve them well when they are one day faced with FCAT (or any other test that requires critical thinking and reasoning). It's these moments that gets those brain juices flowing and the "right side" of creativity to "talk" to the "left side" that encompasses more logistics and planning. And that's a VERY GOOD thing!
OK I will climb OFF my soapbox now. :-) Enjoy these next few pictures of the finished work.
Now that you've enjoyed the "Heart Art", check out our Mosaic hearts added to our Classroom Tree! And how about those GORGEOUS flowers???? A great big thank you to the Moms who helped us decorate our tree and make it pretty for our classroom. We have decided to try and do a thematic tree. So this month's flowers are the reds, pinks and purples. Coming NEXT month? Dr. Seuss and whimsical blues, oranges, yellows and reds with LARGER flowers! If you're out and about and you see any fun LARGER flowers at a great price, we'd love you to pick them up for us. As you can see, it takes quite a bit to cover the tree.
I know it was being decorated today during Math and the kids could hardly keep their eyes off of it. Now, I am sitting here alone long after the kids have left and I find I can't keep MY eyes off it either! Thanks again, wonderful Moms, for all of your effort to bring our tree to life!!
