Beginning KW's school gift: Mosaic Frame
Earlier in the year, Victor made some lovely wooden frames which we have utilized in the bathroom. But something was missing. So KW decided to use the frames themselves as a base to create something beautiful that also gave back to the school. After making tiles from clay and making mosaics of our own, it's time to transfer our skills to a larger group project.
Capers: There's just a little space between the tiles
Lily: You have to leave a teeny space between the tiles.
Capers: Ok. Thank you for letting me know.

Children Led Game: Mr. Fox
I love this game! - Cate
One of our favorite outdoor games is called "Mr. Fox." The children split themselves into two groups, foxes and bunnies. As they designate roles for the round, they practiced entering play, communicating with their peers and negotiation. The bunnies go to one end of the outdoor classroom and designate it as their "safe zone" or "bunny hole." The remaining 1-2 children are the foxes who move to the other side of the outdoor classroom.
The bunnies ask "what time is it Mr. Fox. The foxes then give a time in hours such as "It's four o clock." The bunnies practice one to one correspondence and listening my taking as many steps as the number of hours. If the foxes say "midnight" or "dinner time," the bunnies must run back to their 'bunny hole' before the foxes tag them. If a bunny is tagged, they become a fox. KW has decided that the last bunny gets to be the first fox in the new round.
