Projector Mark Making

The Butterflies explored mark making on the overhead projector.

The children quickly noticed that the marks they made were projected onto the big screen. 

They watched in awe as they drew lines and circles and saw them appear. 

The children grasped the markers in both palmer and pincer grasps to make the marks. 

Strengthening fine motor skills. 

Children have meaning to the marks they made on the paper. Henry was drawing a T Rex and Ayaan was drawing his family. 

Frankie noticed her hand in the reflection and began to draw around her hand. 

The children were interested in the projector commenting on the light and saying it was bright. exploring new vocabulary.
