It has been an intimate and cozy week due to the low attendance numbers. While Monday was a more regular attendance day, and lucky for Zoe whose birthday we celebrated, Tuesday shifted our class size to three people. Wednesday numbers increased by two and we concluded our week with six children.
This change in class size and class dynamic presented opportunities for children to connect, interact, and engage with each other and the materials more one-on-one or two-on-two. The foci of our experiences this week were continuations from last week, using clay slabs to work with the scoring and slipping technique, constructing (elaborate) buildings, racing cars on race tracks, and drawing self portraits.
Get up and dance Brown Room (all three of you)!!

We took a break from the big (hollow) blocks to offer a block puzzle: Can you make a chair, a table, a house?
