Dear Little Atelier families,
How are you doing? Have you tried the activities we've been sending?
At school, the teachers take turns and prepare group works or art activities each day.
Monday : center activities
Tuesday: art (Ms.Soyeon)
Wed: group work (Ms.Stephanie)
Thurs : group work (Ms.Esther)
Fri : art (Ms.Soyeon)
We've been sending emails a day before the days we are in charge so you can have time to get supplies if you need and plan your time ahead. For example, if you don't have enough potato for tomorrow, you can get it today.
When working with children, organizing yourself is the key (minimize back-and-forth supply grabbing time, neatly organize supplies on the table so the children want to grab them and explore them), so you can minimize the distractions and the children can focus for long time without interruption.
Here is an art activity suggestion for tomorrow.
Title : Potato stamping art
Paring knife for carving shapes (or cookie cutter can work, too!)
Pen or pencil to draw shapes
Paint and small brushes
Plate to use as a pallet
Paper to stamp on
5. You can also carve your child's name letters and have them make their names.
For example, you can carve S O Y E O N (6 letters).
If you are working with more than one child, you don't have to carve the common letters twice or three times. Have them share. That's another way of learning commonality.
I don't want you to be overloaded with activities 🙂, but it is good to have resources.
Enjoy the time with your children. It passes away fast.
We are the teachers of Little Atelier. We love to share our fun days, meaningful plays, and memories with you!
