"What can a dot look like?"
This is a question that is just starting to "take shape" in our minds and we will continue to explore this idea.
We used corks, q-tips and pencil erasers to stamp dots of different sizes.
We asked the question "What can dots turn into?"
We got answers like, "seeds, stars, the sun, the holes in our noses, eyes".
The next day we revisited the dots.
We asked the children to draw circles around their dots using crayons and chalk.
We extended this dot/circle concept by having the children use tp tubes to stamp circles onto paper.
We also painted the tubes to use as a parent/child
activity we had available at our open house.
