Another Day, Another Dollar... "Next customer!"
More time was given to personalizing the shop/restaurant as the children thought up shopping and ingredient lists.
Look how much ingredients! -Tommy
Zarina: Pasta, pasta, croissants, and pesto. ... It's squiggly pasta like a tornado.
Tommy: Hot tea!

Going Into the Field: Our first trip exploring the neighborhood
We went on a real, real field trip out to the country. -Hugh
Our first small group field trip took place today with "teacher Kate" as the guide. Kate joined Rainey Room and will continue to be a part of our class every Thursday. Having her as an extra teacher along with the children's continued, interest and enthusiasm in their classroom shop/restaurant provides opportunities and purpose for more field trips. We look forward to taking more explorational walks outside the micro-locality of the classroom to expand into the macro-locality of our neighborhood.
Kate: What's a neighborhood?
Hugh: It's a street, it's like lots of streets. Like if you take a car and go on the highway across Key Bridge, then you're not in a neighborhood anymore.
What's growing in the outdoor classroom?
