Well, this week was P week in kindergarten and as our art activity (we only get 1 a week! sad, I know!!) we made the 3 little pigs houses out of food items. I always love this project, but get nervous about tackling all of the supplies. It went awesome! here's what we did:
then each kiddo got their own "3 little pigs houses" to decorate and a supply tray. we used sticks to "paint" on the glue.
then they created the rest!
didn't they turn out cute??
It took awhile to finish because the kids were so precise, but I loved it! The only problem was, my room was "borrowed" for testing that afternoon. Normally I am
warned asked to use my room, but this time the testers showed up without my knowledge and the desks were filled with projects. I was pretty annoyed, but overall the guest were respectful of the projects (I only found 1 on the floor, a table moved and chairs everywhere when I got to school this morning...)
Anyways, I love art in kindergarten!! If only we could have it everyday (Seriously?? What has this world come to when art is not in kindergarten???) Now i'm off to plan next week's reading, writing, and math (oh ya, and the one art lesson...). 2 hours and 20 minutes is just not enough time anymore!!
Do you get art everyday? If you do, what kind of math/reading curriculum are you using? Do you have to stay on a lesson-a-day format or can you be flexible to add these activities in?
