The Olympic Colors

Our MWF classes have enjoyed many classroom activities  during the 2018 Winter Olympics.  We have been keeping track of Team USA's medals and much more.

A group art project started with dollops of paint and forks.


Then we added circles.

Construction paper scraps and cereal boxes get turned into Olympic art.

Several weeks ago, we painted with plungers and plastic lids.

The table length paper was cut down into smaller  pieces and the Olympic colors were at the easel. 

Tomorrow is the last day for Olympic art.  It will also be our gold medal awards and closing ceremony.

A Rose By Any Other Name

Our TTh class is creating some friends for Elmer.

First we painted---

Fun foam conversation hearts because Rose is a chatty little thing---

We love Rose!

F is for Fun Foam

We love it when parents are cleaning out and donate arts & crafts supplies to our program. First, it saves MCP money and then it allows us to be creative with a lot of materials.  What do you do with thousands and thousands of pieces of fun foam (you think I'm exaggerating...I'm not)?  Letters!
Love the purple, red an orange combo!

Love it!

It's a pattern!

Red, White & Blue

We have a lot of independent activities for our MCP students to work on during center time. As we celebrate the Olympics and our past presidents, students can color the American flag and press 'the easy button.'

Elmer and His Friends

Today we will be celebrating Valentine's Day but our fun with elephants continues.  

Sweet little hand prints painted gray are an elephant.

We named her Mary.
