wallpaper sample collages

last year at one of our lead teacher meetings at the public schools' partnership office, we received books of wallpaper samples to use in our classrooms. i brought my book into the classroom today for some collage work. most of our children were already engaged inother activities when i arrived at 9:30, but i had a solid group of five who stayed with me ALL morning, snipping and cutting and designing and arranging and gluing and folding.

the level of focus and concentration was pretty impressive. i'm excited to see where this goes tomorrow- especially because by the time lunch rolled around, there were several children wandering over and investigating the paper, complaining that they hadn't had a chance to "play" with it.
