Our story this week, well actually last week, is The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. It's about a little girl, Vashti, who doesn't like to draw. It's a really cute little story and my kids loved it. Her teacher puts her drawing of a dot in a swirly gold fame. This inspires Vashti to make more dot paintings- big dots, little dots, etc. Today we did two art activities. They made a small painting of their own dot and they painted a gold frame. The frames came from Michael's. I saw some that were swirly but they were $4 each. Nah. Couldn't do it. These were cutouts- I think 6 in a pack for a dollar.
Here they are painting their frames with glitter paint- oooh!
Some made a dot by NOT painting a dot like Vashti does in the story.
It was a pretty good day. They had a lot of fun. We don't have Art or Music anymore so it was nice to see them creating something. I heard, "I'm going to make a dot by not painting a dot, just like Vashti."
This is my first year teaching kindergarten. I taught first for ten years and loved it. I also taught second for two years. I love teaching and can't imagine doing anything else. I'm married to a wonderful man and we have an adorable daughter we just love to pieces.
