We had another great day in KW today! We made the most of the somewhat milder temperatures and started our day in the outdoor classroom. Some friends worked with collage and watercolor materials and others baked a variety of "dirt cakes" for their friends.
Before lunch we shared ideas regarding children's wishes for the ducks and the canal (based off of ones made earlier this school year).
Jill: Do you have any new wishes for the ducks?
Prater: I hope the ice breaks so that the ducks could get in the water.
Cassius: I wish that the ice would be forever.
Rose: I wish that the pond would never freeze, so that the ducks could be there.
Prater: So it would be a happy ending.
Jill: What will we notice at the canal (tomorrow)?
Jay: That it was frozen.
Rose: Usually the water freezes on top, it doesn't freeze underneath.
Lucy: I think the ducks will be there.
Cassius: Maybe the ducks will be frozen in the ice.
Rose: I want to wish them a good life.
Jay: I would wish them a good life, too.
After lunch, we revisited some clay pieces that we made before the holiday break. The pieces were part of the clay tracings created to represent the Koi Pond water sample in the digital microscope screen. Today children used those pieces, thick card board, paint and a glue gun to create 3D images of the Koi Pond water image.
Small construction, mandalas, message center and BINGO were also on offer for the latter part of our afternoon. Looking forward to DIY Pizza Pies tomorrow and (weather permitting) a trip to check in on the ducks at the Canal!
