We started off the day with Chapel! The Rainey friends were very familiar with the story Ginny read, Too Many Mangos by Tammy Paikai. A family has too many mangos from their tree and decides to share with their neighbors. Each neighbor gives them a “mahalo” or thank you gift in return. The trees gave fruit to the family, the family gave fruit to their friends, and their friends gave them a gift in return. So much to give!
We were thrilled to welcome Will back to school as he shared stories about the jungle in Costa Rica. He did not miss a beat in the classroom and helped us come up with some ideas on how we can hang our paper ornaments and flowers in our classroom tree. A team got together and created designs for the flying device.
Will: I have to make the flying motorcycle. There are two fronts and chairs in a line.
Or we can make a ladder made of wood.
Lisa: Can you make a design for the flying motorcycle?
Will: I can draw it.
Margaret: How can we get up to the flying bike?
Sam: We can use an airplane to get to it.
Will:It doesn’t have wheels. Or wings. It just flies itself.
Jossie:It has propellers on the sides and top. Will said it just flies itself so you don’t even go inside. You can sit on top. But the propellers there…you have to hold onto the propellers.
