I just finished helping guide and complete the "class project" which will be auctioned off at our Savoir Faire Fundraiser next weekend. We (parents) cut, sanded, primed and painted the wood blocks (cut from 4x4 post) then each student chose a block and painted a chicken on it. The tape came off, cubes were screwed into a 1/4" painted plywood base, cork was glued on back to cover screws and voila.... a Kindergarten masterpiece!
I'm not sure what we're going to call it....any ideas???
The chicken is the Kindergarden mascot, thus the chicken theme for the blocks. In a few weeks, each student will be given a fertilized egg to take care of, study and then watch them hatch and grow. We can't wait!!!
The hangers on the back were just attached five minutes ago and now we're finally complete! Here's a brief visual story of what they/we (kids and parents) created....
(Sorry there are no photos of the kids!)
Thank you Val, Blu, Andre, Susannah, Mrs. Fiore and Mrs. Krout and all you awesome kindergarteners!
