For the past 10 years I have not done "real" clay projects with my Kindergartners or First Graders. I don't know what my issue was...clay is just SO much work (for me...loading the kiln, setting the kiln, unloading the kiln, labeling work, making sure bags are zipped close, scraping scraps off the floor, refilling vinegar containers, fishing lost clay tools from drains, etc...!)
This year I took the plunge and made pinch pots with my Kindergartners and First Graders! I love how honestly and lopsided they turned out--that sort of thing makes my heart SWOON!
More posts to come on these lumpy, lopsided little lovelies!
