It has been an exciting week in Rainey Room! Children began exploring clay, beamed beautiful smiles for picture day, and continued sharing their collections at morning meeting. This week, Ford, Ava, Zari, and Seon shared.
Ford’s Collection of Tickets
While sharing his collection of tickets, Ford explained the meaning of each one and was able to tell the children about the special events of his summer. He recognized the print and logos on the tickets and recalled the locations he had visited, demonstrating an understanding that print carries meaning.
Ava’s Collection of Rocks and Geodes
Ava carefully brought her collection of rocks and geodes over to the circle and held one up with blue crystals. Her collection inspired a discussion about the physical properties of her various kinds of rocks. The children made observations.
Zari’s Collection of Acorns and Rocks
Zari shared her acorns from her collection and noted similarities and differences as she described each one. Her observations of her collection also inspired her friends to ask questions and make hypotheses about the origin of acorns.
Seon’s Collection of Leaves
Sean brought an album filled with various kinds of leaves she had collected. Seon compared, contrasted, and classified the different sizes, colors, and shapes of the leaves. She recognized that symbols carry meaning when she saw a Gingko leaf and called it the School Leaf, which happens to be the logo of our school, St. John's.
We look forward to learning more about all of the children’s collections in the coming week!
