In the big studio, a variety of friends played Charades behind the shadow screen. When Ellee and Willa performed, they moved their bodies without speaking and waited for the audience to guess their act. Willa jumped up and down, and Ellee crouched low and raised one leg up in the air. The audience, Prater and Lila, gave a lot of good guesses; they guessed Ellee was pretending to be a turtle. The actors finally revealed what they were acting out: A paintbrush with soap.
Ellee: Sometimes paintbrushes can paint soap.
Willa: I was a soap.
Ellee: I was the paintbrush 'cause I was lifting my leg to paint as a long tip.
Our progress on the disco ball continued in the mini-studio today. Grace held the hot glue gun her friends placed sparkly objects onto the ball. We used the wooden tools as a "sixth finger" to prevent burning our fingers. At meeting, when we discussed the disco ball, we decided it should hang on a hook "above where we dance". Prater had the idea to host a disco party and invite the Brown Room and the Rainey Room... Stay tuned!
Two of the Tucker Room children brought special objects from home. Maya brought a chapter book called "The Enchanted Wood". She showed us her favorite pictures in the book and told us it was about an "angry pixie." Mac brought an instrument: a guitar!
