Word Wednesday: The Little Pine

  Painting Little Pines

Before we delve into our conifer lessons as an extension of seed study, we took a turn painting Little Pine's.

We painted indoors to fake forest  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsYa4eZfqIU, but would jump at the chance to bring our watercolours into the sunshine.



Afterwards, I prepped several shapes and forms to represent events in the story, "The Little Pine"
Instead of jumping into storytelling, I asked if anyone could make sense of the symbols.


The Little Pine is pining (haha!) to look like a deciduous tree, longing for leaves in place of needles.
However, every time the Angel of Trees grants his wish for golden or glass or green leaves, he discovers having needles is not so bad afterall.


Ms.C took a turn at making forms with lovely long lashes!
