Sadly, I don't work with the Prep One's at our school. Their individual teachers do art with them. The Prep's are a fun group to work with because pretty much anything they do is always cute! :)
One of the Prep One teachers displayed this piece at our annual art exhibition. When I taught Prep One, we did something similar and it was one of my favourites. I love anything with hand prints! It's such a fun and cute keepsake that kids enjoy and parents adore.
I don't always miss my days in prep one because I love my new job, but when I see things like this, I reminisce about my first class and the little people that made me smile constantly.

This was a piece the Primary Three's (9 - 10 year olds) did for Halloween last year. We created this 'tie-dye' look using coffee filters, markers and a sprinkle of water. The kids coloured coffee filters using (washable) markers and then sprinkled it with water. It was incredibly messy as the ink from the markers dripped all over, but the kids loved it and I was told, 'the messier, the better!'. And, they did help me clean up afterward. They sweet eh?!?
Once the coffee filters were dried, we drew silhouettes of houses and trees with black sharpie. Lovin' the end result...

This year the Primary Five's (11-12 year olds) are sitting an exam that will determine what school they will advance to. They are leaving us in a few short months and it is always a bittersweet time for us teachers. I try to make Art as relaxing and comforting as I possibly can as I know they have a lot on their minds and hearts with the upcoming exam.
