It's coming together...
Today we explored and took a closer look at the individual pieces of our dragon costume. We are currently in the process of adding the hand-sewn scales to the fabric and have previously chosen the colors for our costume but haven't decided on a specific color order yet. During morning meeting, we (re-)arranged pieces of paper in representation for the large pieces of fabric that will serve as the body of our costume and decided on the following order:
RED (the head), BLUE, PURPLE, GREEN, BLACK, ORANGE and YELLOW for the tail.
Bright in the front and then black and then bright in the tail. - Wilder
I think Louise (Frannie's sister) is going to like this! - Cape
.After we decided on a color order, Finlay asked the question "But when is it gonna be done?"
Together, we thought about what would still need to get done before the costume is finished.
A head! - Hugh
More sewing for those two.
(pointing to the two pieces of fabric that were without added scales) - Wilder
So this morning we focused on hand sewing additional scales for our dragon costume and other sewing projects...
Wilder, Michael and Hugh also explored a few new materials, such as nuts, bolts, hooks and washers, in our construction area. Many of the Brown Room children have recently shown an increased interest in machinery and tools.
These materials provide opportunity for a variety of exploration (e.g. size, shape, weight, functionality, movement) and promotes critical thinking.
