The children were so excited to share with their families and we had been working on lots of projects and I had been planning the displays. Much of what I'm posting wasn't available for families to see when they picked their child up that day, but miraculously appeared before they returned that evening. Many of my parents hang out for a bit when dropping off/picking up their child and have the opportunity to engage in activities with their child and see projects and things they've been working on, so I like to make sure there are always some surprises in store for them when they come to Open House.
|Each child and myself chose the color of their handprint to make |
a very vibrant and welcoming sign for their families to see as
they arrived in the evening.
|We had our digital frame out for all to see, a sign-in sheet for|
attendees, and the gorgeous flowers a family donated to us for
the special event.
|Here's a little closer look. I took photos during the process and|
then asked each child about it after their painting was dry to get
feedback and thoughts about it. We included both the photos
and the documentation in the display.
|I posted this information to explain to families how our project |
came to be.
|We displayed the paints we had used and had the two musical|
selections alternately playing through the entire evening so the
families could hear the music that their child chose to use.
|We documented the Ant study through photography|
and documentation and had it out to share. I found
this cool ANT font free online. I thought it was the
perfect accompaniment for our display.
