Earlier this school year, our class began a year long process of creating art collaborative art pieces based on the Montessori math material called the Short Bead Stair. In this material, the numbers 1-9 are represented by specific colors that correspond with all other Montessori math lessons. I invite you to read more about it in the post about our art project for the number one. The following photos depict the process we used to create the art work for the number two which we completed this week:
Eventually, we will have each of the numbers represented by a collaborative art piece. We plan to display them down a long hallway which we use on a daily basis to walk to and from our outdoor play area. Won't it be fun to count forwards on the way out and backwards on the way in as we walk through the hall…?!
|First and second days - shades of green.|
|Third day: beads, pom-poms, and straw pieces that have been cut to smaller bits.|
|Close up after day three - very fun!|
|Day four: glue and glitter.|
|So much texture...|
|Number Two: Short Bead Stair|
