We had our first of three Mystery Guests for the week. Jack’s Granny and little brother George came to read us a book about a spider having a tea party. The children were enthralled with George and could not stop tickling and hugging him. We are so excited for him to soon join us at St John’s in the Brown Room!
Jessica joined us on our backwards day so we made the most of the morning and went on a beautiful autumn walk. We toured the spooky Halloween decorations in Georgetown and collected colorful fall leaves that hid tiny insects. The children were “not even scared” by any ghosts, skeletons or tarantula topped pumpkins. The children kicked through leaves and gathered them by the armfuls. Sometimes it is good to walk with cameras, notepads and drawing materials, but it is just as important to simply enjoy.
Our paint supply was running low so we decided to use our fall leaves for color inspiration. We talked about creating a palette of colors that live together like a family. Each one is different and brings something special to the mix. It was a good exercise in color mixing because the children were investing in creating a color that matched their favorite leaf. We also got to take a close look at all the different colors one leaf can have. It created a meaningful opportunity to reflect and appreciate our walk earlier in the morning.
