Magic Letters

Last week was all about Art in Italy. In Lesson 2, of Mother Goose Time’s Art Studio curriculum, the topic was “Portrait.” The day before they completed self-portraits, so we talked about the difference of a self-portrait and a portrait. Our Pre-K students paired up and sketched a portrait of their friend.

One of the activities in this lesson was called Magic Letters. The toddler class used the letters of each child’s name and wrote their names in the white crayons that Mother Goose Time provided. We love that Mother Goose Time provides so many of the materials needed for each lesson – it is really convenient!

Once the teachers wrote their names on the paper, the children got to paint with watercolors to uncover the hidden letters. Using the letters of the child’s name for this activity provided a great way to practice name recognition. The teachers traced their names in Sharpies when they were dry so that they could see them better. It is fun to see what colors the toddlers use and how each piece of artwork turns out.

We loved painting upside down like Michelangelo!

Our first week with MGT Art Studio was a great success! We are learning a lot and having a lot of summertime fun!
