The Portfolio Guardian
This group had a unified vision, so their drawings are very similar. Although Audrey had participated in yesterday's small group, she volunteered to join this one as well. Notice how even their teeth are grid-like!
The Guardian for Shiny Things
The portfolio example proved pretty straight-forward. Children were able to make connections between the item that should be protected and the guard that will do the protecting. Thinking about a guardian for shiny things was a little more ambiguous. Children seemed likely to connect their ideas for this guard to what they knew about the transformers or robots.
Maxon - (It could be )blue and it shoots lasers.
Marley and Violet - It's a robot.
Maxon - I think it's a transformer.
Violet - It's medium (in size).
Maxon - I agree.
Violet - Marley - Do you think it's medium?
Marley - I think it's medium because I'm medium
Maxon - I think he's invisible during the day and shiny at night.
Violet - It has shiny things.
Maxon - Maybe a golden treasure.
The Committees at Work
Happy 25th, St. John's!
It was a wonderful day of celebration all morning long!Both Brown Room and Tucker Room ate our lemon-yogurt cake at snack. The reviews were less than enthusiastic... clearly children preferred the chocolate cake we baked for National Chocolate Cake Day! Nevertheless, a good time was had by all. Thanks to all the families who came to participate in sewing and weaving. We can't wait until this rainbow is hangin in our greeting hallway. A special thank-you to Carola Mamberto for creating an exquisite and moving video! Enjoy these image and have a wonderful weekend!
