Learning is messy!
This is my classroom motto. I use it a lot at the beginning of the year for students who have an aversion to getting dirty. This theme from Mother Goose Time perfectly represents what I mean when I say learning is messy. We spent the entire month making huge messes and the best part is that we didn't need to stay inside to make these messes. We did chalk art in the drive way, painted on our backs in the back yard, painted master pieces in the art center during recess. Simply put.....
It was magical.
This blog post is a picture walk summary of what we did this month. Showing children that art comes in many forms is so important. They will learn to find beauty all around them even in the most nontraditional places.
I hope you take the time to wander around your neighborhood and see the beauty that can be found with your class and remember....
Live Long and Keep Teaching!
