5 and 6 year olds
What a lovely day. I think working with the tissue paper was almost therapeutic. I was very impressed with the classes ability to sustain a focus for such a long time to achieve these beautiful images.
I found the idea on http://www.studio-kids.com A very clear set of instructions. Many thanks. In contrast to these instructions, the children did all their own cutting. We found a collection of different sized round things to trace around. Their newspaper city, they cut out of only the black and white parts of the paper.
My friend, also a teacher, found an excellent 'tidy up' song online. Tidy Up Rhumba I played it to the children earlier in the day, so they could listen to the words which are fun. The tidy up time was effective which is upper most and the children enjoyed it.
