Prek is exploring putting shapes together with clay in order to make something new.They're getting quite proficient with the concept, and are having a whole lot of fun with it!

Your child may come home with something that looks like a bunch of pieces stuck together, at first glance. When you ask leading questions about what your child has made, and once the explanation comes, maybe your perspective will change. It is a great transformation: I will never forget when I overheard a student explaining to his mother that he had drawn a monster in art class- At first glance, I had only seen scribbles, but when he mentioned it was a monster, I noticed that he had very carefully placed eyes, mouth, and a row of very sharp teeth to a hairy body.  So let your child guide you into his/her world!
