Today, we got to learn about Johnny Appleseed! We painted a HUGE apple (large enough to keep the doctor away for several days) with tempera cakes. Then we took apples and used them as stamps (I cut a bunch of apples in half and took bites out of some of them). Before I saw them for their second class, I cut out and glued their heads onto the apple. Then they used a Q-Tip to add seeds to their apples. They also glued a pan on top of their head, just liked Johnny Appleseed! Lastly, they colored their stem brown with a Slick-Stick (not pictured in my example) and cut out their apple.
While at Fall Creek, I have had the opportunity to teach 4K which has been an absolute blast! This is a project that Tasha Newton taught. First we used tempera cakes to paint our pig. Then we took blue and white crayons and drew bubbles onto the tub. Next we used a spray bottle with blue paint to spritz the tub, revealing the magic white crayon! The next day, we cut our pig out and glued him on. Then we glued on cotton balls and two X's as faucet handles.
