Hello everyone, Preschool Class here!
This month, we had a new type of craft that included our favorite thing: making a face. But, even though we are very good at drawing hair, giving a haircut is very different! Our latest crafts let us practice just that! We were able to use scissors to cut the ‘hair’ on our Halloween Monsters!
Toni started us by showing us how to use scissors. We understood that our daddy finger went into the top handle and that the silver part of the scissors should face away from us.
Then we were off! Some of us were good at stretching the paper hair away to cut safely, but some wanted greater control and cut small snips at a time very close to our hold. We were all so careful!
Some of us cut big lengths, and some of us cut little by little from the ends. But we all liked to get our paper and keep cutting for as long as Toni and Nanami would let us!
“I did it!”
We had so much fun practicing over and over.
“How do you hand your scissors over?”
Toni and Nanami taught us scissors safety, too! After we finished cutting, we had to close our scissors and pass them over to our teachers handle first. We didn’t practice walking with scissors safely, but Toni showed us how to do that too.
“Ready for the face? Here is your monster’s nose!”
Once we did our noses, we got stickers for the eyes. All of us did so well, see?
“I can put it on!”
Once we were finished, we tried to put on our hats all by ourselves!
We all wanted to see our reflections, so we went to the mirror outside of the classroom to see for ourselves.
Like a werewolf, we all howled in joy for this craft! It was so fun, and we continued to wear this craft for a little into playtime, too!
Good job, Preschool! Let’s continue to have fun and do our best in class with everyone, okay?
