In the studio, we did some important work on our very first birthday committee this year. Ellee, the birthday child, had some requests for the committee that included a pegasus, a unicorn, and a tiara. Bruno began rolling long coils for the legs of the unicorn, and added smaller pieces for hooves. "You know," he said, "My mama teach me how to do this." Prater took on the job of the tiara and a diamond necklace, while Willa helped construct the body, the face, and the hair.
Last week, the children suggested ways we could include more people in our movies and plays. Cassius said, "we need a bigger space".
Prater: "So how ‘bout this. Some of the people can go on the ground, some of the people can go on the stage. Yeah, we’re gonna spread out."
Alex: We could put blocks right there so more and more people - so all of us could perform at the same time. Some people could be up here, and some people could be down here on the blocks."
Since it was important to our class to have more people in the plays, today we pushed the construction table over to the stage to make it bigger!
Lucy helped us assemble all the pieces of our honeycomb project into one big shape. She said it was the shape of a dog bone.
