"I love fire trucks. So, maybe to tell my house I will draw a fire truck." -Hugh
With the completion of our Rainey Room Book of Addresses, we wanted to leverage the children's interest in drawing their own homes. We asked for photographs of everyone's houses, and today we began the project of drawing portraits of our homes.
Cate: Windows are to see people. The couch is here.
Cate: I even have a neighbor. She’s right over here but um, right over here because both of our houses are… And we live next to each other. Molly, that’s my neighbor.
Max:I don’t have a friend that lives next to me. No I only have an adult neighbor. I do have a friend that goes to St. Johns but Hadley lives across from me.
"I have that one at my house!" chimed some of the children about the books that Sarah brought in today to read. Loving all three books she read: Sam and Dave Dig a Hole; Pretend; & Just Ask!
Harriet read Aladdin to the children. A familiar story for most, but the catch--Harriet read the book in Spanish! The children followed along with the reading and were happy.
