The children worked so hard to sew the most beautiful embroidery for their Moms this Mother’s Day. I know they were each so proud of their hard work! I have done this activity in the past and each child colored a rainbow and we sewed the rainbow image. This year I have a lot of different aged children from ages 3 to 5. I decided to allow each child to choose their drawing, colors, and sewing. I think the results are stunning and special for each child. Above you can see pictures of someone’s mom, a flower, lots of colors/circles, a rainbow, and lastly a cake. All for Mommy!
It took Mrs. Brittany and I almost a week to get everyone’s pictures drawn and sewing finished. I was proud of their work ethic and ability to keep their focus on such a long task.
We have been working on our Shapes these past two weeks! They have enjoyed many of these shape activities. Below D and A are stamping shapes that are made out of cardboard tubes.
We hunted for shapes around the classroom, and took pictures of our shapes!
The children also really enjoyed these Tangram puzzles from my old first grade classroom! They are some smart cookies!
Even on our walk to the library today children were finding squares and rectangles and triangles all over the place on our walk!
It has been a fun few weeks!
