The Sky classroom was brightened this week by the addition of some beautiful, fresh flowers.
These flowers were available to the children at activity times should they want to do any observational drawing, and the idea became very popular.
The children were eager to examine the flowers more closely to see details such as what was inside of the petals, the shape of the petals and leaves, and even discover the different smells.
“That’s in my garden! I like the smell of it.”
The children started by noticing the shapes that are needed to draw the vase, and tracing the lines of the flowers with their fingers.; some had pointed edges, others were round.
After drawing the outline of the vase and flowers with a flair pen, the children identified the different colors and shades that they could see and worked to find the best match with crayons to fill in the empty space.
The children hope that these spring time drawings brighten your day the way they have brightened the Sky classroom.
