Hello Pre-K Parents!

I hope you are enjoying this great weather we are having, (apart from the rain last night).

This week's lesson will focus on FLOWERS! Please look at the "Introduction to Flowers" and the "Georgia O'Keeffe" videos before you begin the new lesson. 

You will notice I have divided the lessons into PreK and K5 this time. You are certainly welcome to explore the K5 lesson as well, if you need or want more enrichment alternatives.

The link is the same to the Distance Learning Google folder.


Please note there are three parts to the lesson. The first parts are preparing the background paper with either paint, or they may try drawing patterns and lines with markers. Once the marker lines are drawn they may use a wet paint brush to stroke over the markers to allow the ink in the markers to run to create "marker paint".

The final lesson is a black line drawing of a flower garden scene using a black Sharpie. If you choose not to allow the use of a permanent marker, than any dark water soluble marker will work as well.

I hope your child enjoys the lesson this week. please remind them to enjoy God's flower creations all around them.

Happy Spring!

Painter's tape is one of the best inventions ever. It goes on  (and comes off) easily – whether you’ve got a smooth floor or  a carpeted one (but be sure to test  it first just to be sure). And there’s so much you can do with it! Put it on the floor like a ladder. Then have your chilld see how many rungs they can jump. Can they jump farther with a running start?
