Saturday Reading – January 12 2013

1 Comment Blogroll, Early Childhood Education

Here’s a few blog posts that caught my eye this week.

C is for Chicks from Preschool Daze – One of the most vivid memories that I have from my early years are a pair of chicks that we hosted in my third grade class. I remember being fascinated by them, and I remember the sounds they made (and that smell). I had the opportunity to take them home for a few days, probably a long weekend, and that’s when we named them Orville and Wilbur after the Wright brothers, because they seemed determined to fly. I think that animals of all kinds are a wonderful experience for young children.

Best Art and Creativity Quotes for Children & Adults from the Artful Parent - I always hold onto quotes and there are a number in this post that I will definitely be writing down. A couple of my favorites are “Art takes nature as its model.” – Aristotle and “The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children.” -Elaine Heffner.

Painting the Snow from Happy Hooligans – This activity combines two of my favorite things, snow and bringing art experiences outdoors.
