This is the town board from our Enki curriculum. It is for learning word families such as Eep/eap and Ight/ite.
I used stockmar water colors directly onto a tri-folder presentation board I purchased from Staples. The paint is really thick. I put it on saucers and added water almost as if I was using oil paint on a painter's pallet. I learned a lot about color mixing and using water colors when I went through this process. It will be good to bring that to the kids.
The town isn't finished yet. It could use some flowers around the houses to make it come more alive. But it was functional and the kids really enjoyed it.
