It’s February and so begins Black History Month! As a strong proponent for culture, I want to make sure my students learn as much as possible about other cultures while they are with me.
The kindies first listened to a story called The Spider Weaver: The Legend of Kente Cloth and learned what it was. Then they watched a brief video of what the real thing looked like and then we got artsy!
First by painting stripes on red, yellow and green paper. Then the next time they came to the art room, we painted patterns on white paper.
Then I cut strips from the original striped paper and cut strips onto the patterned paper, careful not to cut the entire paper.
Then they wove the two together.
Great Job Kindies!
