February Artistic Challenge - Flames
Our children are having a great time painting flames and telling stories about them. I will be sharing this on artistic waves once I get all the entries. The process goes like this: First they share their idea of what they are planning to draw, then they share their draft versions to get some suggestions for improvement, then they finish their art work and weave a story around it, finally they write the story and submit both the art piece and the writing part. They are allowed to get help in writing from teachers, from the web (search for words & spellings), etc. They are constantly thinking about this activity and even during break times they are discussing each other's creations.
