In the making - Recycling Tree / Nature Tree

Introducing our gorgeous 'Nature Tree' ! To start with we wanted to call it a 'Magical tree' but settled down with 'Nature' as it seemed better with lots happening on it :) Wonder what it would look like after another week or two? A variety of leaves, flowers, insects, snakes and more critters are making it an amazing activity these days. Everybody is excited to add something of their own. Since there are no restrictions, it is interesting to observe that they enjoy making things on their own and try to improvise on their next idea.  
Everybody is having fun this week.

While we are still smiling at the new critters showing up on our 'Nature tree', do pop in to watch for some new critters, leaves, bloom or another surprise critter showing up on it :)

Enjoy creating with us!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
