The Brown Room had a busy fun-filled day! As we work and play, we notice that there is more interaction among children. Today Sam, Sally and Rowan fashioned a cardboard house for themselves. A little later, Louise, Kian Rowan, and Jossie were on board a flight for Florida. Here's a little of that scenario:
Louise - Bye, Rowan! We're going to Florida.
Kian - Let's go! Lemon juice!
Louise - I want some almonds.
Rowan - No we don't (have almonds). Let me check. (Checking his little black book.) We have money for you.
Jossie - Thanks for the ticket. We share this ticket, okay? Hey, we're here! We're at Florida.
Louise - Oh my goodness! I love Florida!
Our studio work is getting more complex as well. Today we used clay to build 3D structures. This involved scoring the clay and using slip to attach smaller pieces of clay. As Jack finished his clay sculpture, he declared, "My mom's gonna love this!" There was also plenty of time for painting. We focused on letting the colors be neighbors and today's painters were quite successful. Elle created a painting that included many of the colors found in her dress.
The most exciting part of our day came right at the beginning. Charlie's parents had a Mardi Gras parade for us, told us about this celebration. They came back with chocolate coins and beads for the children. There was even a King Cake for snack. Sally found the baby in her piece of cake, and she shared it with other friends. Many thanks to the Olinde family for celebrating with us!
