Parts of a Flower Puzzle Painting

This is just simply beautiful work by one of my five year old students. It was a very busy day in the classroom today. I walked by this child's table looking for some tracing paper for another child and was drawn into the work. I had to photograph it and put it on my blog so as to simply share its beauty. First she traced the outline of each of the individual pieces of the puzzle and next she carefully painted it. Notice the glass sand dollar (top photo) and the two smaller metal leaf paper weights (bottom photo). I keep several paperweights in the class for the children to use to secure paper or a book page while they work.
