Note: Due to the wet conditions, we postponed our neighborhood walk to the Koi Pond. We hope to reschedule for next week.
Inspired by the school's new logo, children have been working on their own ginkgo transformations. Both today and yesterday, children used drawing, collage, and painting for their creations. The work was engaging and even a little whimsical, at times. We will continue working with ginkgo leaves next week.
Middle Room Adventures
Today's middle room work began with children noticing the work from yesterday and thinking again for the home for the dolphin. As is often the case with construction, there were more opportunities for collaboration. They also incorporated the dollhouse into their play.
Jack - (Noticing the building) It's so strong because I'm sitting on it with my knees.
Lochie - If we put these side on now, we can't get the bottom. it will fall through.
Jack - Lochie, do you need more?
Lochie - Look, we made a house for Blowhole.
Elle - I added slides, waterslides. (Later...) Here's a diving board and another diving board.
Reed - (Building nearby). It's a castle.
Jack - This is a backyard with all the trees. This is stove. The stove goes downstairs. Can you help me get all this stuff out and we can organize it?
Elle - You can all play, but first we are all organizing it.
Have you noticed that this group loves to build? There was smaller scale building for animals taking place in the classroom both days!
There has been a lot of enthusiasm for table setting. Each child is eagerly waiting for his or her turn to design an interesting arrangement. Today we were excited to add to the experience by using our place cards.
Have a wonderful weekend!
