The Life Cycle of Pasta?

I want to share an idea from an amazing preschool teacher, Danielle Witherington from Lexington, KY.  I believe the best early childhood teachers come from an art background.  Why?  Because of the developmental growth and personal confidence that results from exposing young children to varied art experiences.  And that’s one of the reasons I think Mrs. Witherington is such a wonderful teacher/encourager of young children… because of her art background.

That perspective of art as it relates to childhood development is why I have asked Laura Bird Miller to share art masterpieces with Fireflies’ readers each month and Rachel to share simple art projects you can easily experience as a family.

OK, I know a butterfly is not a bird (even though they do have wings!) and does not actually fit into this month’s theme.. but I wanted to post the project Mrs. Witherington’s shared with her 4 & 5 year olds this week.

BTW – check out our May 2012 posts.  Theme: Butterflies!  My favorite butterfly book?

A Butterfly is Patient by Dianna Hutts Aston

Is this great or what?    Thanks so much for allowing us to share this idea with our readers, Mrs. Witherington!  I just love it.
