Light: Making Connections
As Louise was walking to the Middle Room to work on the light project today, she recalled seeing a fancy light over the weekend. "At the ballet.. at the Nutcracker, there was a big light hanging down from the ceiling and there was a flower, and it was a light, and it was beautiful," she said. Perhaps this inspired her to work with glitter to create extra shiny items for our light, saying "I'm the glitter master." Children first looked in the greeting hallway for some new materials to include on the structure. Alexandra found silvery liner and said, "This is perfect, but first we need to cut it." Of course, there were more literal connections as children wrapped and twisted wire to connect a variety of materials to the structure.
Children are enjoying their time together during this last week of school. Throughout the classroom, children were enjoying companionship and collaboration. As they did on Friday, children used magnetic materials to create space ships and flying saucers with a space projection. This is a group that loves to play "family," so it came as no surprise that there was a family of flying saucers including children and teachers. They were also invested in making messages and preparing gifts for their families. Sally and Austin dedicated a lot of time to message making and worked on the layering of different materials. Of course, there's always time for a good book, especially a good holiday book!
