Two classmates created this beautiful collaborative art piece. As the two friends painted, one of the children would count every brushstroke he made while the other child would repeat every word he said. After the first child counted to the number 15, he started singing his ABC’s. Again, the second child started repeating the first. With the teachers working together with them, they worked their way through the entire alphabet and started counting all over again! This was a wonderful opportunity for the children to work together to each a friend and to reinforce their own knowledge. The second child had the opportunity to be taught by his friend and he enjoyed every part of it!
The painting they created is a symbol of the strong friendships made in the classroom and the power and capability of a child.
