Autumn Colors Open Ended Art


Selena always looks forward to Open Ended Art. This morning was no different, she watched with anticipation and excitement as I prepared the materials. The theme this week was Autumn colors Red, Orange, Yellow, and Brown. I used this time to reintroduce patterns with Selena. I took construction paper and cut all the colors into strips. I made the first pattern to show Selena what we were doing. She was a little apprehensive at first, but soon caught on.  Now she did most of the work, all I did was the taping for her, as the tape stuck to her fingers and she was having a hard time getting it in the place she wanted, darn I should have used stickers, those she would have done great with!
