Today, we introduced children to the classroom studio and painting at the easel. Children learned to use two hands to choose one colored jar of paint at a time. An exciting moment was when we observed our classroom drying rack being lowered by a pulley. Charlton, Ragnar, Ford and Seon looked on with interest.
I’m making mommy a picture. I’ve got a idea! I can put it in my take a home cubby. I’m mixing the colors. Look it's green on the end! - Ford
I’m making the dots. - Emma (Makes swoosh noise) as she paints
We look forward to the children creating many more masterpieces !
Communicating with Messages
Children also made messages for their friends and families. Rawls was determined to make his message just right and insisted: Need more green!
Isabelle carefully chose her paper and markers. Making colors for mama.- Isabelle
Other friends used "technology" to communicate: I want to call mommy. -Charlton I gonna FaceTime you. -Ragnar to a friend
Exploring Our Environment
For the second day in a row children noticed bells ringing outside of the Brown Room window during snack. Today, they decided to investigate.
I think its coming from the train! - Charlton Firetrucks have bells! - Ramsey What’s that noise? Let’s check outside! - Rawls
Children also had the opportunity to explore the outdoor classroom again today. Charlton and Ragnar shared some "muffins," while Emma investigated the sand pit.
