It's Fat Tuesday, a.k.a MADRI GRAS! Special guests Siobhan, Geoff, and Yamile (Willa's mommy, daddy and nanny) came in to celebrate with us. And boy, was it a party. They all marched in wearing masks and costumes, and playing music. It felt like a real parade. We got chocolate coins and colorful necklaces. We even had our own parade where we went to Rainey Room and delivered some necklaces to their class. At snack time, we had a King Cake (brought by Siobhan and Geoff). Geoff explained that there is a little plastic baby inside, and whoever gets the baby in their piece of cake gets to throw the Mardi Gras party next year! Guess who got the baby..... Willa!!!
"Hockey" time outside...
Mac, Lucy and Prater added a "wash" to their clay pieces by painting with watered-down underglaze and sponging off the excess underglaze on the top. This technique emphasizes the crevices of our clay impressions.
Prater's turtle is missing! She made a sign to post around the school, letting others know to look for it. Luckily, we found the turtle's mommy outside. (Bottom left picture: Rose gathers materials to help make more signs.)
