This week I put out the J stencils and the dot painters. I made the J stencils last year by cutting a die-cut J in cardboard rectangles. We're using J since we were talking about the birth of Jesus.
A couple of kids colored some J shapes. Others created their own pictures without the stencils. Then H said, "I'm going to make a candy cane."
I love that H colored the stripes. Then she drew the cane around the stripes. And made the stripes longer to fill in the cane.
"This way is J...and this way is a candy cane."
