I can make as many as you need! - Will
Gingko Leaves conversations
Fay - I'm doing the stem green first, then I want to put beads everywhere. Then with my finger I swirl it.
Eliza - I want to draw my own ginkgo leaf - I am done, can I put glue on it now?
Fay - I am doing different colors everywhere so it looks good.
Eliza - I need some yellow, we are going to hang them on the window in Blake Hall.
Fay - Yes, because we need decoration.
Adaline - St John's symbol is a ginkgo.
Eliza - My mom is going to be so happy. I am making a heart ginkgo leaf.
Adaline - My whole family is going to come to the book fair and look at my ginkgo leaves.
Bailee - (entering the Atelier to help us) Why do we do ginkgo leaves?
Adaline - Because it's St John's symbol, it's special.
Fay - Can I do another one? I am only going to use green this time, because it's my favorite color. It's so hard when they're running away (the small beads), and remember the most important thing is to write my name (to Brigitte).
Another Day, Another Ginkgo leaves Creation and Conversation !
Adaline - (explaining to Joci what she was doing) You have to trace the leaf with glue first, then you can add the beads.
Will - It's not really St John's symbol because St John's symbol has two leaves.
Adaline - Ya, and St John's ginkgos are not real ginkgo leaves because they're rainbow, and real ginkgo are only green.
Brigitte - Do real gingko leaves are only green? Like green all the time?
Adaline - Then they turn brown!
Will - Before they turn brown they turn yellow.
(Brigitte is writing down conversations and children are working)
Lillian - When nobody talks it's a little quiet !
Brigitte - How many ginkgo leaves do we need?
Will - I can make as many as you need!
Brigitte - Oh, thank you Will.
Adaline - Ya, we can make a lot, because we need so so so many.
Cal, ford, and Pierce also came in the Atelier to help us create beautiful ginkgo leaves.
Ford - I can trace it myself (with the glue) I might need help with the lines inside.
On Thursday, Seon and Zari Joined the Ginkgo leaves Club!
Seon - It's going to be so beautiful, I like mine just like that. (With few beads.)
Zari - It's really hard to pick up the tiny beads.
Ellie - you have pinch them, it's so hard when they're on the table.
Thank you to all our diligent and hard working CW friends for making so many beautiful ginkgo leaves for the book-fair.
Halloween is definitely on everyone's mind ...
We have been offering the CW children Halloween props to use for table setting, the CW children have asked us if they could use the Halloween props in the construction area to continue to build haunted or spooky houses.
Seon wanted to find room in the Halloween house for all our Halloween props, Ford found a perfect place for the hedgehog to burrow himself in. Fay wanted to build a haunted house for the skeleton, it was so intriguing that some other CW friends wanted to help Fay.
Natural Materials Collages
We hope you are enjoying your children's collages displayed in the hallway, on top of the Rainey Room and Tucker Room cubbies, some of our friends continue to work on theirs.
Pierce - (Finding a big leaf on the playground) I want to put it in the atelier (for collages)
Our message center is also getting a little spooky...and as popular as usual.
