Children are starting to see results with their bold, beautiful headband. The photos above represent the two approaches taken by the children. Louise has been working on creating the base... the part of her headband that will stay on her head. Everyone else has been working on the design.... which leaves them with the challenging work of forming a base and attaching the design. It took perseverance today, but children began to see their ideas come to life. Stay tuned.... we'll be working on these for quite awhile!
Yesterday we had 12 children on our sewing magic list. After working diligently yesterday and today, we have eight children with pending wood and clay sewing projects. Today Leigh moved forward by working on both her wood and clay sewing. She also said, "This time, I'm going to be careful with this (clay) because in Rainey Room, Reed tore all my papers and all my clay broke." Working on sewing often allows for conversation... or in some cases music. Today Ellie and Leigh sang selections from "Frozen" as they worked. Remember to take a look at these masterpieces on top of the Tucker Room cubbies. While you're there, you can see the headband designs on the wall opposite the cubbies.
Children also retuned to some of their plans for building by adding details to the drawings they made yesterday. There was also time to build, today primarily with magna tiles. The structure was a collaborative effort and featured a pool, a round-about, and cannons for protection from the bad guys. More children discovered the white marks left on their watercolors as they pulled away the tape. Of course, we truly enjoyed the beautiful weather during our outside time.
