Happy Fall! We hope you have been enjoying the cooler weather.
What we’ve been up to in Room 1:
-creating with various mediums (puffy paint, grape and blueberry scented play dough, watercolor, paint inside coffee filters)
-writing our own books
-making pinch pots out of clay with Ms. Elizabeth
-taking a walk near the school and visiting the duck pond
During our trip to the duck pond, these were some of the observations the children made:
“Some are big and some are little.” -Chauncey
“They’re purple. And green. And black and white. And they swim with their feet.” –Ma’Kyla,
Puffy paint is created using shaving cream, glue and watercolor. When painted, it is wet like paint, but when it dries, it becomes puffy and soft.
When we asked the children what they thought it feels like now versus what it would feel like when it dries, this is what they said:
“It feels soft right now. I think the paint will feel like stone when it’s dry.” -David
“It feels soft right now. It will just be dry.” -Maddie
When they were all finished drying, our friends checked out their papers and said:
“It’s so soft and fuzzy! Like a kitty cat.”- Maddie
“It’s really soft and puffy.” – David
