Back to Books and Beads!
Children were back to work on their books and beads today. Tommy created his book, carefully implementing each step. He started filling it in with a story about Bob and Ferb. Other children added to their books. Tomorrow, we will introduce some different papers to the book-making process. When it came to bead making, everyone was interested in clay bead today. Maisie and Tegan worked on some round beads that used both read and white clay. The bead makers also noticed that different styles of beads require different skills. Tegan said, "It's hard to make the circle ones." (She's right!) In both bead and book making, we have noticed that children are persistent! They keep trying and implement new strategies until they find success.
Children also communicated and collaborated throughout the day. They were interested in making sweet messages for each other, and included several "Xs and Os" in their work. They were delighted to see how happy these messages made the recipients. Although it was chilly outside, everyone had a great time helping their friends on the swing and inventing giggle-inducing games for the slide. The week has gone by quickly and we are looking forward to Friday fun!
