Let me tell you a little bit about Ms. Aileen and Ms. Sarah. They are amazing. Just simply amazing. The things they come up with for these kids are wonderful. Yesterday, I wrote an R-I-Y for the ladybug craft and today I got to carry it out with our little friends.
On the way to school, Adalai said "Mom, this is way better than a regular day because today, instead of leaving when you drop me off, you get to stay!" (Please remember that, cutie pie, when I drop you off to 7th grade and decide to hang out all day). We sat the 7 children down 4 at a time. Do the math. What does that mean? My daughter did it twice. :) We laid out the bodies, wings and heads and poked our little holes for the brads. I had the kids pick out 6 buttons for the spots, then 2 googly eyes for the eyes. It was so fun to see how excited yet attentive these little 3 and 4 year olds were.
It's great to see kids get excited about art! It's great to see them put 5 spots on a wing and 1 on the other, instead of classic symmetry. It's great to see them mull over closely which buttons to choose, and then take such pride after they've finished. I hope they never lose that!
