Another busy Tuesday is in the books! We had visiting educators stop by KW last week and we continued to think about visitors today. In three weeks, St, John's will open its doors to a large group of educators. Children thought about messages that they could share with some of the visitors. After they came up with what they, wanted to say, children made more lovely watercolors to accompany there words. Here's what they want visitors to know during visiting day:
"Welcome! You should check out the bell tower,"
"This school is great. You should look at our job chart."
"Talk to my teachers in Rainey Room, please."
"Look at our portfolio drawers. You can open them."
"You can take a break. You don't have to see everything. My favorite thing is message center."
"Dear Visitors, welcome! Maybe you can talk to my parents."
After our walk last Friday, the children started to put together a story involving a lot of vehicles. Today children started drawings that could illustrate the story. Grace and Lou Lou worked on drawings of their families. As Hugh and Tommy drew detailed vehicles, they discussed their process:
Hugh- It's a six-page book. Okay, now I need green for Sam's car carrier. It's a good idea.
Tommy - (Drawing rounded lines) In Washington the roads are bumpy. I should draw a person walking on the sidewalk.
Hugh - That's a fire station. I'm doing city maintenance. Well, not city maintenance, but a city. I'm making a tall apartment building.
Tommy - Do you know every building needs a window. Otherwise it would be too dark in the night and people would be too scared.
The boys agreed to keep working on their illustrated story on Friday.
As always, children enjoyed the time they spent together outside and reading books. We can't wait to see what happens tomorrow!
