The children have repeatedly and excitedly noticed the rainbows in the room, on the floor, ceiling, and on each other. There is much to be explored about the rainbows that are in our classroom, on most mornings! Establishing knowledge about color and the colors of the rainbow will help to guide our exploration.
"If you mix all the colors together you make a rainbow."
"Orange is there. I see it It's in the middle. Between red and yellow." -Audrey
"We need yellow, red and white to make orange." Audrey
"I think we need more white." - Maxon
Making "Rainbow Green"
Cedar: "I think blue and yellow make blue." She mixes the colors "It's turning green a little bit. Its green now!

Sylvie and Jane finished creating their tags and tied them onto their cubby bags!
Digging and hanging outside after sing along!
Thank you for joining!
What a refreshing three day weekend! While we were happy for the extra day of rest, we certainly missed each other! We spent the morning catching up with our friends and sharing our favorite songs over the singalong. We led our friends in some classics like “I’m a nut” and “You are my sunshine” and then finished with a surprise french rendition of Twinkle Twinkle little star!
After singalong, several friends worked on rebuilding last weeks animal city that now includes a forest. Unfortunately, our “baby zebra” got lost in the forest, so most of the animal’s construction time was spent on a perilous rescue mission!
Documenting our Obstacle Course Materials
Today we also took the time to discuss how and what to document for our guidebook. In our conversation, we spoke specifically about size and shapes of the materials that we could recreate in our documentations.
Talking about drawing our Obstacle Course Materials
Jack: I can draw a rectangle
George: Just a marker and make it a circle
Lochie (looking at the bench): So it has two sides in front and two sides in the back. One in of front of the standing things and then tiny cracks
Jack (looking at the bridge): I would draw it like this, just straight lines (counting one straight line, two straight line…) Theres only seven straight lines!
CC (looking at a feather): Look at these straight lines out of a straight line
Lochie: A square wood, another square wood and a green tunnel in the middle
