It was great to meet with a new group of KW today. We started out with familiar KW routines and traditions. Elle introduced Prater to the table setting job. The theme was jewels surrounded by more jewels. After lunch, children worked on creating their place cards. This year, one of our big ideas involves exploring the natural world. In keeping with this, the materials for the place cards were (mostly) natural materials.
The rest of our indoor time was spent with activities that we loved last year. These included mandalas, two large puzzles, and stories about Miss Viola Swamp!
An important part of KW is extended time in the outdoor classroom. Today children worked with watercolors on paper that had been divided into sections with tape. Once the paint dries, children can peel away the tape to reveal the negative space. Perhaps inspired by the construction across the street, children started digging and hauling sand in the wheelbarrows. Today's mission was defined as "digging to London."
