Dear Preschool families,

Our week started with a story titled Line and Scribble by Debora Vogrig. The fun illustrations showed us how lines go straight and scribbles how they wonder on the paper. With our information from the story we set out to trace lines and scribble designs on large pieces of butcher paper. The children were invited to use three types of art medium- colored pencils, oil pastels, and markers. Then they followed directions as to what medium they were using at a given time. For example, ” please use a colored pencil to trace a line.” We were so impressed with the children’s ability to follow directions and work together as a team. Way to Go Preschool!! We are proud of you!!

Mirror Mirror on the Preschool Wall… One of our favorite provocation is to introduce the children’s self- portraits through activities, songs, and stories. We are excited to add a self-portrait drawing each month to be on display in the classroom. It will be so fun to witness the progression through out the school year.

To wrap up the week, we explored Lines in Art class with Miss Liz. We explored what kind of lines we saw from objects in and around the classroom. Here are a few answers:

Mylah “a measuring stick”

Kipton- “a picture”

Scarlett- “a lamp, “night light”

Forrest-“a leaf”

Aubrey-“the flag”

Dax- “it’s not a hammock, it’s a banner

Stylee-“ABC’s

Parker- “the lines on the ceiling”

Happy Fall! Enjoy the weekend!
