Ask me all about our Fine Motor center today! We painted with raindrops!!! Last night we put out a bucket to catch some of the rain. This morning, during morning meeting, we brought the bucket inside and measured the amount of water we caught. The we used watercolors and painted with our RAINDROPS!!! They are gorgeous! We learned that an artist holds a paintbrush just like a writer holds a pencil.
