We try our best to get our students put their 100% into their projects. This week we read a classic storybook that is loved by our children called, Where The Wild Things Are.
"That very night in Max’s room a forest grew and grew and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world all around"
Watching our students excited about each scenes was just too cute! Our teacher asked the students to create what they imagined while the story was being read into a three-dimensional diorama. Some students painted grass, some students painted a river, and some students got super creative and painted a world of their own.
When we took a storybook that the children were already familiar with and incorporated it into an art project, we were all able to see the story in a new perspective.
