I brought some beautiful yellow flowers I picked in my yard.
We invited the children to explore the color yellow .
We provided brown pencils for the stems. It turned out to be a great opportunity to talk to the children about lines, "Are the stems long or short?", "Are they fat or skinny?".
We also used this yellow discovery to learn some fine painting skills.
We used small paint brushes and encouraged the children to use small amounts of paint.
We focused on how to hold the brush and having a soft touch.
As you can see they turned out lovely, even our youngest class members were able to show us long thin lines for the stems and delicate yellow flowers.
