Today, Will and his mom brought in a bobblehead--the second from their collection at home. Will explained that the figure he shared last Friday was one he had played with as a baby. Today's bobblehead--Ryan Zimmerman--was a gift from his brother Max. Will's bobbleheads are special because of the people, places, and experiences they represent. "Will explained, "I collect them because my brother gets these bobbleheads at the Washington Nationals." The Mazzettis have about ten bobbleheads in their collection, including players from the Nats and the Yankees. The children had a few observations about the bobblehead:
"It sounds like bubble." Sally
"He's weird." Kian
"He looks like a bird." Rowan
Jack and his dad shared some airplanes from Jack’s collection. As Jack told his classmates about some of the different planes in his collection, he also shared stories about why they were special to him. The F-14 Tomcat is one of the Jack’s favorite at the Air and Space Museum, a place he visits frequently with his family. He also like the aircraft carrier and to see “Old Grandad’s airplane, the A-6 Intruder.” The class was so excited about Jack’s planes that he agreed to let everyone play with them during class after he took a photo of the whole fleet. Sally and Sam even helped Jack build an airport. The planes were a hit. Thanks to everyone for sharing your special collections and the stories behind them.
