Art in the Ladybugs

Art when you are 4. . .
sometimes you need 2 hands . . .

and sometimes you need to see both sides . . .
a masterpiece!

Bike day!

A little mentoring...

a little math...

a little art...

a little more mentoring... (this time making helicopters that fly) 

and end it all with bike day!

Fun times in the Ladybugs!  Art, math, friends and bike day!  What more do you need?

Welcome new Ladybugs!

We wasted no time getting started in the Ladybugs.
We love using geoboards to explore geometric shapes.

We had some time to get acquainted with new friends,
and play outside.

Our mentors made their first visit to class today,
they're helping us with patterning. 

The Ladybugs are off to a great start!  We're busy learning the routine and meeting new friends.  It's looking like a good year ahead!

                      See how much we've grown!  Thanks for being part of Seabury School.

Action Painting

One of the artists we talked about this week was Jackson Pollock.
He used a method of painting called "action painting".
We think it's a very fun way to paint!

The kids created two masterpieces.
We have several very talented builders in our class.
We've been waiting for a sunny day to make giant bubbles!

It was a busy last full week of school.  The kids have spent some time painting in the style of several famous artists.  Jackson Pollock could be our favorite.

Famous Artists and Sudoku

The Ladybugs are using the final days of school to learn about famous artists.  So far we have learned about Rothko, Kandinsky, and O'Keefe.  Our math mentors came to class today to help us try our hand at sudoku.  The kids did a great job figuring the puzzles out!

We love Eric Carle!

The Ladybugs have been learning about Eric Carle, his books and how he creates art.  The kids have had a lot of fun creating creatures in the style of Eric Carle using paper they had painted.  It's no surprise that Eric Carle is one of our favorite authors.
