The children read a book and then they act out the characters. By acting out the story, the students develop language skills and use gestures to learn to communicate with others.
In paint, the kindergarten has fun mixing colors and discovering new shades. They can use these to paint their memories of the Hudson Hike.
The children explore their senses by using the Studio’s sensory table. Here they use tools to learn about water in our environment. During the school year besides water, we use sand, soil and other objects.
In collage, the children are given construction paper and scissors and learn to cut out shapes. They then take glue and create a collage. Often they can choose. It could be a bird, a robot, an outdoor scene, etc.
In all of their work in these art languages, students learn to show their ideas. They learn to make a plan and adjust it when the outcome is not what they expected. They explore with their hands and bodies, which we know helps young brains to grow!
