Making messages, painting with our shades of grey paint, viewing the classroom stories movie, and making witches brew on the outdoor classroom.
While watching the Classroom Stories video, Lane observed the way two children's shadows combined into one in the video of the shadow dancing. She describes, "When two people are together they look like one big fat person."
Lou Lou and Leigh painted this afternoon. Here's some of what was said while they painted:
Lou Lou: "I'm making a person in a shadow show. Like we do."
Lou Lou (Painting a head shape with no features): "Shadows have no eyes."
Lou Lou: (Adds hair) "It's Sally."
Jill: "Because it has long hair?"
Lou Lou: "Yeah, and straight. The next one is going to be Leigh. She has a white sweater. There's her ponytail."
Lou Lou (working above the figures): "That's a spider web. Once I found one in my room and my mommy took it away so the spider wouldn't bother me."
Lou Lou: "I see the shadow of my steps every morning. Almost every morning. Anytime there is sun."
Lou Lou (continuing to paint): "Shadow show. That's Leigh jumping and that's Sally's bow."
Lou Lou (adding black paint to black paper): "It shows up."
Lou Lou (adding grey and white paint around the black): "I'm adding this so you can see where the black is. I'm making a flower. A shadow flower."
Leigh had joined the painting but said no one could look yet because it was to be a surprise. She worked quietly for some time.
Leigh (describing her work): "I did light, dark, dark, dark. The painting's for Halloween. It might not look like Halloween to other people but it looks like Halloween to me."
Lou Lou: "It does. It looks like Halloween to me. Because it is dark and spooky."
Leigh (painting more): "That's a monster."
Leigh (after she had finished working): "This is a ghost and this goes lighter and lighter." (Pointing to shades of paint) "The reason it's a ghost is this is a ghost's body. That part is when the ghost is turning 'round and 'round and 'round."
Have a happy weekend, everyone!
