Kindergarten Book Buddies-Learning About Disabilities

This week we had a chance to hang out with our Kindergarten Book Buddies.  We’ve missed quite a few times with them with all our snow interruptions, so it was nice to have a time to learn and share with our friends again.

This week’s activity came from a book the Kindergarteners read that was illustrated by a woman who is paralyzed from the neck down.  Now, how does someone who is paralyzed like that illustrate a book, you ask?  By holding the art utensils in her mouth, of course!  So, to experience what that would be like, to have to do Art without the use of our hands, we had a painting experience like no other.

Enjoy these photos from our day:
