The little ones spent the morning with Aunty Reiko of the Reading Garden doing a book called The Way I Feel.
To compliment what they learnt in the morning and to really cement the theme of the day I decided to do emotion portraits with my little darlings!
To make it specific to the book I made emotion cards that went along with all the pages of the story... we had scared, happy, sad, angry and excited. We talked about how we show emotion mostly in our eyes and mouth and then they were given the cards to examine how the feeling made the eyes and the mouth change. Of course some of them were quick to point out that we might see noses flare when you get angry or steam coming out of ears... in cartoons! lol...
Once everyone was comfortable with their emotion cards we drew them out and painted! Here's how they turned out!
See what they did at The Reading Garden!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
