My doodlebugs are between the ages of 4 1/2 and 6 so it goes without saying that they jump at any chance they get to move and shake! We don't usually start art class with a dance but today was a class with a difference! They listened to this catchy little sing a story called The Really Silly Robot and they all got up and tried to do the wiggle, squiggle, shake, shake! It was hilarious LOL.
Then we discussed the parts we need to make a robot, namely a head, body, arms and legs. Now some of them are great with shapes and some need a little reminder but they all loved creating these crazy shape robots!They all created a dancing robot but we approached it differently according to their age. My 4 and 5 year olds traced and cut out their robot part and really worked those fine motor skills, while my 6 year olds drew their robots and we discussed the shapes they could choose from and how to position arms etc to make the robot look like it was moving and shaking lol! Check them out as they piece together their robots and learn all about shapes in the process!
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 :)
