Afterward, some children chose to continue making messages for the homeless in hopes to reach enough for a second round to be delivered on another day.
Messages were also made for family members, teachers with recent birthdays, and friends. Lane made a message for Jack because he has been out sick. Children showed their developing empathy and care for others through these thoughtful and heart-warming messages.
Representing Workshop Ideas
In reviewing recent drawings of children's workshop ideas we realized we have some workshops children have yet to represent visually. We also knew Gigi, having started KW just yesterday, hadn't had an opportunity to show her ideas. So drawing workshop ideas was a choice for today. Maren drew a sewing machine to illustrate our Sewing Workshop (she also worked on her hand sewing!), Gigi drew a Light Workshop, and Evelyn began with the idea of a Building Workshop.
(Hover for descriptions of the children's illustrations.)
At the end of the day, the children asked Lisa and Rachael if it would be OK to leave the building up for Tucker children to see the next day. The teachers said yes which thrilled all of the proud and hardworking builders! Grace D. said she would even bring some of her Rainey friends to see what they had made.
We can't wait to find out the response of the other children tomorrow!!
Other Moments Together
Our time in the outdoor classroom this afternoon could not have been timed better with the weather. We enjoyed a break in the sun and from the wind while we lived up the moments together. Enjoy these photos of joyful times making an "ice cream sandwich" out of friends on the slide, a "rice krispie treat store," partner swinging, and other fun. Not pictured: Sally, Sam, and Austin who were such speedy runners nearly the entire time outside in chasing games full of laughter!
