Are you kidding me!! Is this not the best picture you've ever seen? I would like to introduce you to my new dramatic play area. It's called 'Want 2 Be, Artist". Here's what the kids are asked to do (at this point), They choose an artist image. They find the props that make them look like that artist. They have fun, laugh, play look in the mirror. It's going to be a hit.
I invited my staff to bring their families to my classroom before Book Bingo last Friday. Many of us were donating our time to help with the event so I thought we would have a little pizza party in my room. These kids loved it. I can't wait to introduce this to my classes. I know we are going to have a great time with this and it's just the beginning of where I plan to take it. I will share more!
This was totally inspired by Cassie Stephens. She has a presented a 'dress like and artist' event going on. I dressed like... well who else? Matisse! As I was teaching the kids how to 'draw with scissors', I kept thinking, I bet the kids would love to do this. Why not have them dress like and artist too? BAM! Thanks again for all your great ideas Cassie!! You inspire!
