The children take turns painting texture onto their papers. Different textures are being created by utilizing tools other than brushes. We turned our hands into bubble wands, and curated masterpieces with them! The children loved the final results, and would continue to ask for different colors to see if that could change their textures.

They have learned some public speaking experiences that are very well needed to be successful in life. This was definitely their favorite day of the week.

Learning how to Tie-Die in Ms. Tanya’s Classroom

Learning how to Tie-Die in Ms. Tanya’s Classroom

By admin on June 22, 2018 in Ms. Tanya with No Comments

The children had so much fun tie-dying shirts to wear for Spirit Week. First the children got to choose a white T-shirt. Then the t-shirts were thoroughly soaked in water and wrung out. Then using their thumb and index finger, the children twisted the shirt into a spiral. Then the rubber bands were applied to form triangle slices, like you see on a pizza. Then the children covered their hands with plastic gloves and squeezed the dye onto the shirt making sure that each triangle piece was a different color. Some of the children chose to mix the colors up. The shirts were then placed into a ziplock bag and placed outside in the hot sun over the weekend to help the colors set. Thank you to Sofia’s mom Rebecca for taking the shirts home to launder and bring back for us to wear. Thank you also to Skylar and Rebecca for bringing everything in for this fun project!

The children have been enjoying building with all types of materials both in the classroom and outdoors. It’s wonderful to observe how much they have grown emotionally and socially, especially during cooperative play. They are showing strength in their social skills including taking turns and problem-solving. As you may have noticed we have some amazing new additions outside on our playground and the children are definitely enjoying exploring them. We have a list with all the children’s names and they are learning to wait their turn to use the loose parts patio. So much fun to be had!
