First and foremost, a special welcome to Hugh who's joining us in KW for the rest of the year! Outside today, children began creations for collage-messages to gift the incoming Brown Room children. Using a color-focused collage palette that we designed in yesterday’s staff meeting (so much fun!), friends enjoyed choosing from a variety of blue and yellow materials to create their collage.
Overhead while making collages:
Max: Sadie likes pink and Sophia likes green.
Vivienne: This and this is Max's sisters. This is Elena's sister. Guess what I'm gonna write to them? Definitely not Vivienne. Love. I love you. Look what I did. It's going to be like a book so I can write something inside.
Friends also enjoyed visiting Max and Hugh's pet store. Pets sold anywhere from 50 cents to $8!
Inside and after lunch, friends focused on digital collage and clay block building. Using the Bamboo tablet and the Sumo Paint application, children created bases with a variety of different colors, shapes and patterns. We plan to use these bases in conjunction with other materials to include in our collage-messages for incoming Brown Room children.
Inspired by recent Brown Room provocations, we combined clay blocks with wooden blocks today in the construction area. Children explored the open-ended experience -
Hugh: I'm making a wierd kind of firetruck.
Mac: I'm making a rocket ship.
Jay: So this is the Eiffel tower over a river and then there's walls here for the Eiffel Tower.
It was a busy day with the KW crew! More fun to come this week!
