Artistic Representation

I will admit I am fascinated with art done by chldren. There is an insight into their understanding and perspective that is refreshing. So tonight when Paul started drawing pictures of the animals he saw from our trip at the zoo yesterday I felt compelled to share.

Here is his monkey swinging on a branch.


An elephant with water and hay.I was appropriately corrected when inquiring about the nose- which is really a trunk.


Then he decided the giraffe was his favorite and mostly wanted to capture how it is very tall. Which I would agree is a main attribute of the animal.


We were on a bit of a roll so we also worked on making some flashcards of words he can sound out and spell, so he can now see them in print.
