My sister-in-law keeps encouraging me to continue blogging (or start doing it regularly for that matter).  So this post is for her :)  Yes, I got your text message today....

In our space study we learned about the earth.  The art project for the day was simple, but fun!  First the kids cut a white piece of paper into a circle and glued it onto a black piece of paper.  Then they sponge painted on the white with blue and green paint.  We talked about how the earth is made mostly of water, so I encouraged the kids to use mostly blue paint.  We finished be having the older kids (the ones who would be going to kindergarten next year) write the word EARTH below the painting.  The kids really enjoyed this project!
