This entry goes along with our shape unit.
I recently found out about art journals and thought it would be a wonderful experience with the kids for preschool. There are so many possibilities with art journals and it is a nice way to express yourself with another person through art. This activity can look many different ways for many different people. Art is open, as is journaling.
We will be adding 1 entry a week to our art journal. The themes, topics, or prompts may be random or may go along with a theme we are learning about for the week.
For this art journal we used
Before we got started journaling we took some time to get to know our rulers.Little Dragon had not used a ruler before so we went over the basics. He was excited to use this new tool.
I told him we were going to make a city. There are many shapes in a city. You can focus on one shape or make your city full of shapes.
He was excited to get started.
The past few weeks he wanted to draw cities so this was the perfect opportunity to fulfill that and teach him how to use a ruler to accomplish it.
I started off by showing him how to make a building with the ruler. Then he was off.
He made large buildings, small buildings, short and tall.
But that is not all that is in a city.
He also made parking lots with cars, people, and parks.
His imagination flared at this journal topic.
It was fantastic!
