Preparing for our Thanksgiving Feast "I chopped all these up!" -Cate "Look how much I have in my done pile!" -Caleb
This morning Abby and Sarah E. joined us in the Rainey Room to help the children chop vegetables for our Thanksgiving feast! We used special Montessori-style knives the children meticulously worked to chop the carrots, celery, and leeks into small pieces. Thank you Sarah and Abby for coming in to help!!!
Digital Microscope "It looks like a bird's nest!" - Hugh
We also had the digital microscope available this morning and the children experimented with the zoom and focus functions. They seemed to be more interested in drawing on the light pad with the transparency paper and a conversation began about rainbows and colors of clouds. "A cloud would be white" said Caleb. "But white won't work work on white paper. We could use orange" - James "I'm just drawing the outside and leaving it [the inside] white!" - Tegan
