As we are learning about our new space, we are also learning more about ourselves! We began by reading The Colors of Us by Karen Katz and sharing about what makes us unique and special. Next, children had fun observing themselves in the mirror and began their self- portraits with colored pencils and crayons. These self-portraits will be part of Pre-K portfolios that we will continue to work on over the course of the year!
Art groups are in full swing in the Pre-K Art Studio! We are continuing to explore new art materials and processes, while also learning about the new space. Friends that are new to Capital City have noticed and wondered about many materials that are in the Studio, and friends that were at Capital City last year have discovered that we have some new materials in the Studio as well! The most exciting addition to the Studio is our new sink! Friends that were here last year shared with new friends all about why this was so exciting and the most common answer was… “No more washing our hands in buckets!”
