We started the week off with kindergarteners talking about what the dried salt areas of their paintings looked like. (lesson here) Then they ripped the masking tape off their watercolor/salt paintings (with more "ooohs and ahhs") as the white line stripes were revealed. Finally, they placed their paintings on the carpet area matching up one of their white lines with someone else's.
I was stapling a bunch of them on the hallway display board when a little girl came around the corner from the cafeteria, stopped in her tracks and exclaimed, "OHHH, it's just like a BURST OF COLOR!!"
Isn't this why we teach?!!
