Dreaming of a Home by our Kindergarten students

 We read a story called

"Animal Homes"by 

Brian Wildsmith.

Here the artists saw 

many types of places 

where various 

animals live. 

We talked about what a 

home is. What does it 

do? Some responses 

   "It keeps us warm."          "It holds a family."We then talked about 

different ways a house 

or dwelling could be 

made. We created                 

dream homes where 

your house could be 

made of anything!

Rocket ships, candy, 
            toys , koala bear trees,            

                 club house , kittens.

                       These drawings will 

                               work into a printmaking

The exploration of "home" is always deep and thought provoking at any age (My graduate exhibition was based on the concept!). What an exciting start you've made with your students on this rich idea. Wishing you all an exciting journey with this topic!
