Pre-K 103 is creating soft sculpture, self-portrait dolls. The students will choose clothing for their dolls based on the season in which they were born. We are using loose parts to create eyes, hair, clothing, etc. The students will then use the dolls as a prop to write stories.
Pre-K 101 is investigating holidays around the world. We will be creating Three Kings dolls, dreidels and symbols of other winter holidays, such as Christmas and Kwanzaa.
All three kindergartens are studying what we see in the seasons. The students read a Journeys story about the change of seasons and we're using images from the book as observational drawing inspiration to create acrylic paintings for the classroom windows.
First grade is continuing their investigation of heritage and identity through their personal coat of arms.
Second grade is working on symbols. In the atelier, we are looking at holidays around the world and creating small paintings to share the symbols with the school during our door decorating contest in the month of December.
