Today, Cal chose his symbol. As we and his family anticipated, his final decision was a grasshopper! “ Grasshopper, grasshopper, grasshopper, grasshopper,” he recited as he made his choice. Now that we have all chosen our symbols, the symbol box will be introduced in the Brown Room message center. Bailee and Win, who will join us soon, will choose symbols when they join Brown Room. Until then, here are everyone’s chosen symbols:
Making Cubby Tags
Last week, children started making tags for their cubby bags. Children used sponge stamps to print on their bag tags. Each child's cubby bag tag will also be marked with their symbol, encouraging independence during our transitions. Today, Mimi, Cal and Fay completed their printing projects.
"Look at all these colors. There is purple. There is green. There is yellow." -Cal
Mimi used blue and green stamps on her cubby tag.
"Green! I want pink. I have paint on the table. Is making a rainbow. Another. I want yellow! I all done!" -Fay
Fay also experimented with folding her paper in half to see what would happen when she squished the paint together, creating a symmetrical pattern
Rawls and Ramsey enjoyed printing last week. When they saw their classmates printing today, they both decided to try again today.
"Yellow! Circle. Another Circle."- Rawls
"Squishy. Squishy." -Ramsey
