New frontiers for new learning
Big Ideas, Inquiry, Artists
March 6, 2012Posted by on
One of our Kindergarten teams shared their work today. The students and staff have explored a Big Idea in their room of changes in their local environments. For example, they have tracked a tree in our yard all year long from fall, into winter and soon into the beginning of spring. Students have explored trees and plants in their room. Staff have planned opportunities for learning using the Kindergarten program and provided opportunities for student inquiry to develop in the classroom about changes in our environment. Recently they read Barbara Reid’s Book Picture a Tree. Reid is a wonderful writer, and artist, who illustrates her books using plasticine. I recommend her books for all of our families for their beautiful art and story lines. The student artists then planned their own creative interpretations of the book. They then took their plans and created their artistic works.
Here are the results….
