Back to work we go! Rainey Room B jumped back into the classroom after a few days at home. We arrived in the classroom to find new wooden houses which inspired us to come up with new ideas!
This one has a door - Jane
This one has 2 levels and that one 3 levels - Janie
It doesn't have a fridgerator but we can add one - Jane
Yea, good idea - Janie
I have an idea. You go there and I'll play here - Maxon
The animals are sleeping - Maxon
But we are still working - Jane
As our building grew, so did our narrative. Once again, it had begun to rain. The animals needed to get inside so that they could stay dry for the evening. We thought about what the animals would need to be safe and secure in their homes.
I added blocks to the rain. A wall! - Janie
But we soon discovered that the house was missing several sections that we would need to create. So we set out to create architectural additional
I tried to make the rain go away by making box. It's one of the roofs - Jane
That thing can heat up the food so animals can eat. And you know why I put the things with the holes in?nTo add medicine to keep them sleeping - Maxon
I added a roof for the storm so we wouldn't get rain. I added a black thing (tube) but it didn't work. I wanted a chimney - Lucia
After snack, we read a book Lucia brought it called "If I Built a House" by Chris Van Dusen. We loved the pictures and the ideas of crazy, new rooms. The robot kitchen room and the giant fish tank room were big hits. We immediately began drawing creative rooms of our own.
Some of us elected to do additional research to create new rooms
Can we read together? - Maxon
I choose a castle and you choose a castle - Janie
I'm excited to see what kind of new, unique ideas we have for our homes and how we can find a solution to this ongoing rain narrative that keeps the animals from going to sleep. Tune in next time to find out! See you later, alligator!
