The children have had a great week and have been very busy engaging in many activities. This week water painting has been very popular. The children, armed with paint brushes have enjoyed “painting” the fence. This is a very simple yet effective way to encourage mark making.
We have learnt about coordination, using a balance beam, the children have been encouraged to walk in a straight line and use stepping stones. We practiced pencil control in our mark making area and used magnetic mazes to help. Our Flower group has also started this week and we enjoyed drawing rainbows.
We used our arts and craft skills to make finger print cupcakes, but sometimes we painted our hands!!! We love getting messy at Preschool.
