Sea animals made from clay
Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef by Marianne BerkesI am going to read this to my first grade class along with Over in the Meadow. Some of the verbs will need to be previewed. There is a cute fingerplay suggestion at the end which will come in handy while explaining the verbs. I also intend to use it for classroom management purposes and establishing a warm, fun learning environment. Afterwards, a quick charting of the sea animals and their actions will lead to the creation of a classroom book. I am expecting spectacular results inspired by the dazzling pictures (I was sold on this book through its illustrations). The back inside cover says, The art in this book was shaped entirely from polymer clay. Bright colors, fine details, and textured images tickle the imagination. From the illustrators website:
I try to celebrate my creativity everyday—especially when I’m in my studio making my art and books! The arts are so important for expressing our feelings, thoughts, gaining knowledge, and communicating with others. Creating books is a wonderful way of sharing your own special stories too!”
What a celebration it is. You can read more on her website and at www.dawnpub.com. Dawn Publications says it is dedicated to inspiring in children a deeper understanding and appreciation for all life on Earth. And, that is exactly what I intend to do with this new tool in the shape of a book.

If you are a parent, you would know that there is no greater joy than to see your children start to come to terms with their innate creativity and to show signs of being able to translate that creativity onto works of art. Every parent has a vivid memory of their children and making their first drawing or painting. Moments like those are usually recalled fondly later in life and form not only a starting point of learning to express creatively, but also an area where there is scope for bonding as a family and having a great, meaningful and fulfilling time with your children. Most parents by colours and a sketching pad for their children, but what if your child wants to be the next famous sculptor?

We are excited to be taking part in our first Storybook Summer post. One of our summer themes at Mac-n-Taters is Ocean animals and this book fits perfectly into our theme. Storybook Summer gave us the opportunity to explore a new to us craft medium, clay, and from there our clay Ocean animals were born. If you were not aware, artist Jeanette Canyon created all of the breathtaking illustrations using clay. How cool is that?
Kids like dirt. The good thing is there is a way to compromise - with clay! Clay is a wonderful medium that allows kids to explore and create independently while improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. They are exposed to a wide range of ceramic techniques, like pinch pots, coil pots and hard slab hand building and also learn about the importance of dedication and follow-through. Classes begin immediately after regular school hours to provide a useful extension of time for busy parents while giving children a creative outlet to experiment and learn about art. Artwork created by 5 to 12 years old students.
