We started KW today by revisiting last year's guidebook. We were wondering what they knew about the guidebook -
Jill: Who remembers what this is?
Cassius: It's the field trip book.
Jill: Did some of you use this over the summer?
Rose: I didn't look at all of it because it's too much to look at all in one day.
Vivienne: Can we do that again? Go to those places again?
Rose: Like Rose Park! Because it's my name.
Cassius: Because they have all those fun things there and they have two parks there.
Ellee: I think we should start to take the bus there.
Cassius: We did that for one field trip.
Rose: I took a long trip....to Finale.
Kate: How long do you think it takes to get to Montrose Park?
Some Children: 1 hour.
Grace: 2 hours!
Hopefully we can use our guidebook as a launching point into this year's focus on exploring areas in Georgetown with a connection to the natural world.
After lunch, some friends worked with collage and natural materials and others worked in the construction area.
Grace: We're making a plane
Cassius: A sneaky plane.
Grace: And garages.
Vivienne: Look at how many I have!
Jay and Cassius: Look! (carefully balanced upright structure)
Cassius: Balancing act! This is where the pilot can drive. This is for the passengers.

Grace adds some animals
Cassius: It's a crazy zoo plane.
Grace: Next stop, the rain forest!
Jay: Look, these are the rugs.
Jill: Where does this plane go?
Cassius: I think it goes to the Redwood Forest.
Jay: And to San Francisco to see my uncle.
Grace: (Working with some animals and Lila and Rose off to the side) Everybody, this is called Rainforest Home School.
Ellee: (Building with smaller materials) I'm making it smaller so it will be more stable.
It's so wonderful to see the group together again and the detailed, exciting scripts they're producing!
We headed outside for the last part of our day. Children planned a birthday party for Jay in the cob house -
