A giant dragon? Like this big?
(stretching her arms out wide) - Remy
We projected large images of a variety of dragons onto a special easel, with paper on one side and plexiglas on the other. This way children can trace the projected image without creating a shadow on the paper. The children worked in pairs collaboratively on this new part of our dragon design project. During the tracing process we repeatedly turned off the projector light by closing the shutter, to notice the shape of our drawings on the paper. This gave us an opportunity to compare our drawings with the projected image and identify areas that we would like to work more on. After the tracings were final the children brought them into the studio to then paint them.

Happy Birthday, St. John's!
Today our wonderful school turned "the number two and four" (Bea). We celebrated this important day with a Sing Along, lead by the Rainey Rooms. After Sing Along Molly, as a representative for the school, received a gift from the Tucker Rooms; the numbers 2 and 4 made out of clay. We will find these numbers soon as the newest addition to the "school's birthday count" next to the steps leading up to St. John's. Molly also brought in cookies for everyone in the school. "These are so delicious" (Lily). Thank you, Molly!
