Painting a "Japanese" style portrait with primary color: January 15, 2009


Today we had morning circle with the whole group including Toddler 1s. And we sang THUMPKIN and Jingle Bells (for the last time) with the rhythm sticks and hand bells, and we learned a NEW SONG called "We're Going on a Bear Hunt".

The kids enjoyed running and screaming when they found the bear in the cave (but the little kids were kind of scared by all the screaming.)

In small group, Miss Becky has been teaching about animals in the Toddler 1's and doing Brown Bear in story time.

Jeana read "SNOW" to the Romper 2's and Kinders, and Ms Carol read "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" with the Romper 1's and Toddler 2's.

We also took turns drawing a BIG face on paper and then painting the face with pink and red and other primary colors to create a kind of "japanese" style portrait to decorate our classroom.

The kids all enjoyed painting and had a lot of fun. (Toddler 1's painted on Friday with Tomoko and Becky on the new easel that Mr. Satoshi made for our classroom.)

We hoped to go outside to play, but it was bitter cold and icy, so we played inside instead with balloons after lunch. It was a fun day!
