This week, the children learned that you can make art from tiles or stones and it is called a mosaic. They were impressed by photos of mosaics from ancient Rome which covered walls, ceilings and floors.
They made their own mosaics by gluing strips of tiny tiles on to wooden blocks. Some of the children cut specific colors from the strips to make patterns. Their mosaics are both beautiful and functional—you can use them as hot plates.
In the playground, the children enjoyed digging for worms, playing ball, going on the swings and running in the sprinkler. Next week, we will make a peace garden.
