When Literacy Meets Art
In Kindergarten, we have been looking at a number of books recently that have captured the children's artistic and creative expression, critical thinking, physical development, hand-eye coordination, speech and language and ingenuity.
Runny paint, swirling fingers and then printed onto paper has captured the essence of Van Gogh's Starry Night. The children have described this style as "swirly" and "circles".
We adore the story 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' written by David Armitage and Rhonda Armitage. The children designed and made a huge lighthouse and even made the rope with the basket attached to deliver Mr. Grinling's lunch!
'How to Catch a Star' by Oliver Jeffers was a huge hit with the children. They enjoyed this story very much and made the most delicious shortbread cookies in the shape of a star. Each child took home their cookie wrapped in starry paper.
