This morning, the writing table was the center for a variety of writing and art activities. Each child was able to express their ideas using different mediums and tools, such as, markers, crayons, tape, glue, hole punchers, scissors and magazine clips. Shirley created an art piece that required multiple steps. First she cut strips of paper. Then Shirley glued the different strips on a large orange paper. She also used the start shaped hole puncher to add stars to her work. Matteo focused his attention on cutting square pieces of paper and then used a star hole puncher to make several stars. At one point, Shirley and Matteo worked collaboratively, making stars and gluing them on paper. Aria dedicated her time to creating a card for her little sister. She also decorated an envelope using cards, which she used to place her work inside.
