It makes complete sense that as we continue to explore mark making that we read about Harold and his purple crayon. Maybe you remember the story from childhood . If you don’t there’s a link to the story.
Wouldn’t be a wonderful world if we could pick up a crayon and draw whatever we wanted or wherever we wanted to go ? I missed going to the beach this year so I would probably draw the beach with me firmly planted in the sand.
After reading the story we did our own drawing with a purplecrayon.
Allowing children the freedom to express themselves creatively without fear of failure is important. Randy always said that he loved drawing but his art teacher told him he was not good at it. Let’s not be that person.
Also – I think with these boys I am going to have to brush up on dinosaurs names and how to spell them. 😬
