The Brown Room was a busy place to be today. As soon as children entered, they noticed the large sewing provocation. Children passed needle to a friend on the other side to create stitches of various lengths and colors. Children will be able to collaborate on this experience all week. Parents and caregivers are welcome to join the fun as well!
Close to the sewing experience, we worked on block building. At meeting,, we talked about how to build in a criss-cross fashion to make our buildings more stable. Our classmates incorporated this technique throughout the morning. Joslin was able to construct a criss-cross building that was taller than she was!
On to the studio! Some children chose to paint using the colors we mixed yesterday. Children also made impressions on clay slabs and used slip to attach smaller pieces of clay. Here's some of their reflections on their work:
Elle - I made snowflakes and dots with holes on it.
Sam - Poke, poke, poke, and I made a long hole.
Austin - I took a key and scraped it.
Sally - I clay with holes and I clay with pretty snowflakes.
Rowan - Mine is called "fire."
We're looking forward to seeing our W-Th-F friends tomorrow!
