1st grade - Friday Fun Day no. 1
Whenever we finish a project on a Thursday, we will have a 'Friday Fun Day' in art. Of course, every day in art is fun, but on a Friday Fun Day I will introduce a new medium for the students to play with. There will be little instruction and a whole lot of playing with materials!
This week, our first Friday Fun Day was playing with modelling clay. Tons of fun for little hands and a critical exercise in hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills!
At home, Playdoh is a great investment for your child's development. If funds are tight, check out the RECIPES tab in the right column and mix up your own batch of salt dough!
