Today we got to spend some more
time with our friend Saul over Zoom!
During Morning Meeting the children discussed the possible reasons for our Zoom meeting with him.
Maybe it's Saul's birthday? (Wilder)
That was a great guess. So we went over to our Brown Room birthday calendar and searched for his birthday by looking for his symbol, the guitar. But no, today is not his birthday.
Because we want to see him. (Finlay)
What a wonderful thought! And yes, we do want to see him and continue to build a meaningful relationship with him.
Considering that Saul hasn't spend a lot of time in our (physical) classroom we were thinking of a few things we would like to share with him and show him about our work, projects, and materials in the Brown Room.
What would we like to share with Saul?
I want to share the sewing project. (Bea)
I want to make him a message. (Wilder)
I want to show him some books. (Daniel)
The farm set. (Frances)
I want to share the farm set when I'm done reading books with him. (Daniel)
I want to show him my birthday present on the birthday calendar. (Daniel)
During our Zoom .....
...Michael shared his taxi with him.
...Bea brought Saul into the studio to show him our project work on stairs for the St. John's pajamas.
... Daniel and Saul shared their constructions with each other.
... Lily, Cape and Saul explored our color blocks together by holding the blocks in front of their eyes and the camera.
Saul shared with us that he has also done sewing before - just like we are doing in the classroom right now! We hope to connect with him about this more in the future.
During our snack time we reflected on our call with Saul:
I showed him the things on the wall (our pajama project documentation/drawings of stairs) and the cozy area. - Bea
Silver (remembering Saul sharing his favorite color with us) - Wilder
He was sitting in something. - Bea
A yellow chair. An orange chair. - Wilder
A laundry basket and it was white and blue. And a couch. - Bea
That's so incredible! How did he get in there? - Daniel
Saul, thank you for joining us today! It was wonderful to play, explore, chat and share with you. We hope that we can see you again, soon!
