This is the first time I've really tried to scaffold children in painting a mural, and I feel like I should learn how to do this. The bird drawings that the 5 year olds have been making just seem to really lend themselves to the mural form. And besides, this class of children from the Meadow room really seem to enjoy doing things together (I think that is because of how their teachers have supported them in forming a group that really cares about each other).
When I looked at the children working this way, I sighed and said, "You guys really look like artists".
Nolan said, "Well, we are... well, we do need an artist hat, though."
