Notes from the Classroom

The Week of the Young Child: Artsy Thursday

Our children just love to create. At Good Shepherd, they unleash their imaginations on a daily basis . Art is their vehicle to express themselves, refine motor skills, and explore materials and ideas. In celebration of Artsy Thursday:

The T/Th/F 3's further explored the use of small cups and created their own cup objects by taping, stapling, and/or using pipe cleaners to construct and secure.

The M/W/Th 3's made beautiful paintings.

The 5-day 3's made vases for their paper flowers and made a robot. See the plan (photo) that a child drew of how the robot should look. They spent a lot of time putting ping pong balls down the robot's tubes and problem solved when the tubes became loose.

One 4's class used watercolors, finger paints and other materials to create works of art.

One 4's class used bio water color on coffee filters to create color and patterns. They will become butterflies when they dry.

In addition, the children pursued their regular artistic endeavors.


The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young ChildrenNAEYC – celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families.

GSECC holds the distinction of being accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. We are the only preschool in the Rivertowns area – Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Ardsley and Irvington – to hold this highest mark of quality.

NAEYC is a professional membership organization that works to promote high-quality early learning for all young children, birth through age 8, by connecting early childhood practice, policy, and research. We advance a diverse, dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for, educate, and work on behalf of young children.
