First week back – I’m glad it’s over – it made me very tired! But it was a good week – and the children are excited about our unit on Space! So, I’m happy.
For art last week, we made stars to hang from the ceiling. I die-cut white stars from construction paper and then I gathered collage materials that were either silver or gold for them to glue on – tissue paper, tinsel, garland, glitter, fabric – anything I could find! I set the stars, glue bottles, and all the materials out on a table and told them to make stars! They really enjoyed this project – and I enjoy seeing them hanging up and sparkling as I walk into our room! Sometimes, a little bit of bling is a good thing! 🙂
To go along with this we learned that the closest star to earth is our sun, stars are made up of gas, they twinkle because the air around earth moves, and a group of stars is called a constellation. Some of my parents came in very impressed with what their children have learned so far! I couldn’t help but smile!
