Kinders are working on patterns in their art with the medium of print making and collage. The beginning of this lesson started out with the book Hide and Snake. Secondly, we learned all about print making with recycled objects that are donated to my classroom. Students used these recycled items to make their printed patterns. That was the end of the first day! On the second gathering we discussed patterns and what would make a pattern. Students used fun foam to add patterns to their snakes and eyes that are from recycled bottle claps. For this project I also created glue bowls and I really loved the results. Why did I never do glue like this 17 years ago it is so easy and much less mess than bottles of glue. For this glue bowl I used Cool Whip containers and a sponge that is cut in half.
