We would like to share some images of very interesting work that has happened throughout the week in our construction area. This type of work would be very challenging if it weren't for our ability to communicate effectively and creatively with one another.
Some of the work has been so intentional, that it has expanded over more than just one day at school.
We are continuously developing our ability to persist through tough work and challenges!
When we put so much teamwork, time, and effort into our creations, we are seeing an increase in our desire as a class to "pause and save" projects for future continuation and expansion.
Tint, Shade, and Tone
This week, we also spent a great deal of time expanding our interest in color mixing using paint.
In order to both expand on our current base of knowledge and also connect the work to our interest in photo editing this year (birthday photography portraits), we introduced the following vocabulary terms - tint, shade, and tone - to deepen our understanding of the color change process.
Here is just a glimpse of some of the work from the week, but we would love to share more detail with you in the near future.
Trying Pesto Pasta
Did you hear that we had a special snack this week?
Yesterday, we enjoyed pesto pasta made by Saul and Jordan during their Early Birds time together!
To say we were excited to eat pasta together as a class was an understatement.
Thank you to our friend, Saully, for sharing this delicious food with us.
He put a lot of work into making the pesto for everyone!
A different type of food was recently offered during snack, but was not received with as much enthusiasm as the pesto pasta.
We tried persimmons from our own school persimmon tree!
There were mixed feelings about this fruit, but what was most exciting was that almost everyone was willing to take a brave taste to try it for the very first time.
Other snack time enjoyment this week included giving ourselves mustaches using pretzels...
We hope that everyone enjoys their weekend!
