The Many Happenings During Picture Day...
The construction area was transformed into an airport today. Will and Hugh were the pilot and copilot and it seemed that the plane was headed towards San Francisco. The classroom shop served as the convenient airport restaurant and the children used maps to help guide the plane in the right direction. Measurement was brought up again by Max who asked me (Allison) to come and measure the structure. "Measure it with your body!" he requested and I stood next to the building as they tried building it as tall as my head.
The children decided to make a picnic together in the middle of the room on our Morning Meeting rug.
“Wanna sit next to me?” Hugh asked Tegan as the children began to gather around. Tegan began to hand out the money and reminded us that “you have to have money to buy to eat the food.” Vivienne offered her favorite cupcakes, politely asking the other children, “would you like a cupcake?” Hugh announced, “I’m the waiter I take the food away that people don't want!"
The children are divvying up the roles and responsilibites that go along with running a food-related endeavor. We are looking forward to having more conversations in the coming days to determine what kind of roles we can all play in this script.
We were also excited to learn about Caleb's great adventure yesterday. He stayed home to watch his grandmother's neighbor's house get demolished. He talked about the excavator truck that did "all the work" and showed us his drawings and photos of the event!
