Visiting the Book Store!
The children's interest in making altered books has taken off! We have used books for most of the children, but not quite enough for everyone. With this in mind, a small group walked with the two Jessicas to the Lantern used book store today. The store had kindly set aside some books that we could use in our work at school. While there, children explored the different areas of the store and sat in front of the sunny window to read. Jessica Kuhn read a Fancy Nancy book, a Pigeon book, and "Pokey Little Puppy." The group bought one book to bring back for Rainey Room:
Grace - A book all about trees. The leaves turn colors. I gave it to my classroom because it's very special.
We also set aside some other books to purchase when we take another small group in the future. A big thank you goes out to Jessica Kuhn for walking with us and reading to us!
Hugh, Tegan, Lily, Maisie, and Tommy all preferred to stay together in the classroom today and walk to the book store another day. Their interest in building with wood continued. Today, we added wooden animals and wooden people to the mix. Lily, Dagny, and Tegan worked on animal enclosures. Tommy and Hugh worked as FBI "bosses," who are allowed to have pets. At this point in the year, we see children weaving literacy into almost every activity. Today, several children wrote "FBI." After all, it's pretty cool that the way to spell "FBI" is F B I! There were also more opportunities to make prints. Lily carefully created a series of prints that we will use as a matching game next week.
Enjoy these images and have a great weekend!
