Outdoor Sing Along
Molly: Did you like sing along today?
Lily: It was outside!
Molly: So, did you like it?
Lily: It. Was. OUTSIDE!
I think that means that yes, sing along was extra fun today!
Because we started our day outside for backwards day, we brought our instruments and the tablet outside with us so that we could join the school sing along from the outdoor classroom. Even if we don't always know how to sing the words ourselves (we're still learning some school favorites), it's always fun to see our school community on the screen and listen to the songs being sung!
Where is the fire? - Cape
This is the silliest thing ever! - Hugh & Daniel
Earlier this week, Daniel and Hugh invented a game to play in the sandbox using our brand new dump truck. It turns out that it's actually large enough to use for dumping friends! Daniel and Hugh remembered how much fun they had together on Monday playing this game and decided to teach some other friends how to play today. As silly as it is, this game encourages turn taking, cooperation, practicing patience, and trusting your friends! Thanks for the lesson, Daniel and Hugh.
Happy Birthday to Cape!
Today we had our first yellow celebration for our friend, Cape.
Cape already knew weeks ago, during our first birthday celebrations at school, that his birthday message would be yellow when it was his turn to receive a gift!
Friends on Cape's birthday committee made him a beautiful water color message using shades of yellow and gold and laced it together to complete the gift. Cape's mom and dad (LouLou and Dave) both joined us for the celebration and helped us sing our special Brown Room birthday song. If you haven't had the chance to hear our birthday song yet, we sing for each birthday year starting from "0 years old" and parents help us sing about what the birthday child liked to do when they were different ages.
When it was time to sing about what Cape likes doing now that he's a three year old, he told all of us that he likes to... "Go to school!" We love it when you come to school too, Cape!
Sending a package to Saul
Today, we brought message making materials to the outdoor studio and reminded the children that we were almost ready to send our messages and owl drawings to our friend, Saul. Some children decided that they would take the opportunity to make Saul a final message before we send the envelope.
This week our friend Bea was thinking of Saul as well and brought a special owl light to "show him" even though he is not at school in person with us. It was such a thoughtful gesture. We hope that Saul is surprised and excited to receive our messages!
Ending the day with constructing a castle ...
That wraps up our 7th week at school!
Hoping you all have the best weekend!
