Watercolors and Weavings
We had not done weavings with the Rainey Room KW yet this year. We started yesterday, and continued today. Our weavings were quite small, and initially presented challenges. However, children soon became adept at creating them, using a wide variety of materials.
This afternoon, we put several of our small weavings together to create a belated birthday gift for Jen. Just before dismissal, we gave Jen her gift. She loved it and appreciated all the work that went into it!
Watercolors have been popular all year, and children especially love the vibrant colors of the liquid watercolors. Some children worked one images of the school or the blue door, while others made cool designs.
Many, many messages!
Yesterday children were very interested in making messages. Today we set up message work at a larger table and included trays of new materials. The children went to town, making messages that were unique and stunning!
Also coming up tomorrow....
Please join us tomorrow evening at 6:30 for our discussion with Erica Thompson. This 90 minute parent workshop will empower parents to create a culture of having critical conversations with young children around topics of race, difference, and equity. Erica is the Assistant Head of School for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School. We relooking forward to this engaging conversation! The link for this Zoom event can be found in last Friday's Five Things email!
