Making Connections

We have been talking about the various ways we are connected by exploring things we have in common.
We all have names, friends and families. 
Connection is a great theme because it provides so many opportunities for further investigation into various subjects and interests.
We made compositions of our names out of loose materials.
Everyone has a name!
We all have faces too!
The children drew portraits of their faces on black paper with pastels.

We revisited the concept of lines and realized we can make them connect.
We connected chalk lines on our playground.
After reading the book "The Invisible String" we asked how can we make an invisible string visible? Using a color resist technique we discovered that paint will not stick to oil pastels. Now we can see our invisible string!
We also made friendship paintings and found ways to connect them.
We are excited to see where the concept of connections takes us.
Please remember, if you are able, to take the time to look at our "What's New" bulletin board in our red room. 
We update it daily .
