We are busy finding small shapes in the classroom and bringing them back to the tables to trace and cut. They are then creating something new out of all of their shapes by gluing them together. I love watching them get excited when they find a shape and when they feel proud of themselves for being able to cut it out! Through all this fun with shapes they are also learning about holding scissors and having control while cutting, especially with circles. We’re also learning to be aware of how much glue we need!
I haven’t sent home any art projects yet as I am holding onto everything to show the permanent art teacher, Carolina, when she comes back from maternity leave at the end of October.
