Klee City Scapes

This was the Creative Tots first art enrichment project of the year! We learned about Paul Klee’s love of bright colors and cats! We created our own buildings inspired by Klee’s Cityscape and the tots had some messy fun experimenting with chalk pastels!

The toddler class makes their own Kitty House.

  

Once finished with the chalk pastels we used tissue paper to blend the colors together.

We couldn’t forget Klee’s colorful sky’s!

  
  

We read the book, The Cat and the Bird: A Children’s Book Inspired by Paul Klee, written by Geraldine Elschner & Peggy Nille.

The Pre-K and K-Prep class had a chance to interpret their own version of what the painting meant.

  
 

First Week of Pre-K

We finished our first week of Pre-K and my Pre-k students are already looking like pros. We had a lot of fun this week with “The Kissing Hand” through art, math, literacy and writing activities! I have posted a few pics from our week!

Dr. Seuss on the Loose!

We had so much celebrating Dr. Seuss with our themed days! We did lots of rhyming with both real words and silly made up words!

Did we have fun? Well, what did we do? We rhymed, did crafts and science experiments too!! We dressed up and dressed down…we wore our upside down frowns!

Our Pre-K room is so much fun and fun is good!!!

Hip Hip Hooray for Presidents’ Day!

We recently spent a week discussing presidents. There were many discussions about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We also spent time learning about coins…pondering how much each coin is worth, who the president’s are on each coin, the sizes of the coins, etc.
There was much fun to be had with fine motor activities such as, tooth pick punching, building fun-dough flags, letters with do-a-dots and coin rubbings. We journaled about being president and also practiced our writing skills by using our sight words and sounding out new words. We are proud to be in Pre-K!
