This post is another example or excellent teaching from Jennie!
A journey with children is much like a walk on a path. There are many things to discover along the way, and there are multiple junctions, crossroads and turns. The children direct which turn to take – if I pay attention.
Today we began learning about art in depth. It was a terrific start! When we read a book later that morning, the path turned. Boy, did it ever turn. Let me start at the beginning:
We looked at major pieces of art, again. One look is never enough. The more we look, the more we see, and the more questions we have. Children were struck by the art of Kandinsky, especially the piece above. I slowly panned major works of art to the children, only announcing the title and the artist.

Haystacks, by Claude Monet
