Our large Wednesday group kept very busy. We were happy to welcome Willa, who gave KW a trial run today. We offered many leaf drawing opportunities today, but the nature experience that drew a crowd was projecting materials on the shadow screen. Children created beautiful compositions, and we noticed connections between this work and other recent themes. For example, Hadley moved a stick around saying, "It's not a brew, I'm making a potion." Potions were also a part of our dramatic play at Rose Park last week. Take a look at these stunning images:
We also tackled what is perhaps our most complex cooking project.... ever! The group began making sweet potato cinnamon rolls. A small group started the process in the morning so the dough would have a chance to rise. At various points in the process, children noticed the way things smelled.
Hadley - It smells like eggs, scrambled eggs. It smells like chicken nuggets.
Grace - It smells like where I wish I could be.
Max - It smells like dough.
Lila - It smells like cinnamon.
Tomorrow we will bake and frost the rolls and they will be served at our Friday morning parent coffee. We'll let you know how they turn out!
