Today for our K-Buddy time, we watched a Reading Rainbow DVD featuring Appelemando's Dreams by Patricia Polacco. After the sweet story of Appelemando (who has dreams that change his village by their beauty), we saw clips of other artists and types of art. The children's favorite by far was Hani Shihada. Mr. Shihada is a sidewalk artist in New York who uses his special homemade chalk to create spectacular images.
Of course, we all had to go outside and make our own magnificent works of art, as children drew their dreams and expressed their creativity. It was pretty magical. I think we even made it snow.
