After yesterday's rain, it was great to get outside today. There was tree climbing, taking care of babies, and games of freeze tag in addition to sewing and racetrack creation. Once inside, our attention turned to dueling light tables. Children drew microscopic images from the canal water and the Potomac water. The consensus was that the Potomac water was cleaner (at least in our samples!). At another table, children worked on leaf collages.
Of course, we also had builders! The Construction area is always very popular and today everyone spent some time there. Carl started by building a castle. As more friends joined the area, they began to build boats and create dramatic play scenarios. Here's a plot summary:
Jay - It was a Coast Guard boat.
Prater - Carl was the brother, I was the mom, Jay was the brother, Cassius was the dad. Mac was the brother.
Jay - Rose and Lila were my sisters. (LATER) Lila and Rose were sharks!
Max - Our boat was littler, because they used the hollow blocks and we used smaller blocks. Don't you know, every boat has a floor, so people don't sink.
Jay - The carpet was our floor. Our boat could transform into a helicopter.
Carl - And transform into a submarine.
