Brown Room on Zoom
We used paper strips and pipe cleaners to weave them into our (spider) loom. Another way we used to manipulate our paper strips was twisting them (around our finger, a marker or a stick). This technique creates a bouncy curl and requires a great amount of fine motor precision.
While the children continued to work on their projects we read the book "Blue & Bertie" by Kristyna Litten, a story about friendship and inclusion (more about this book at the end of this blog post).
Michael and Cape brought their loom projects to school today and were excited to show them to their friends this morning.
If you saved your child's work, it would be great if you could bring it to school in the upcoming days. That way we can share and discuss every child's work from our virtual days.
A giraffe puzzle piece made a few of our friends remember the book "Blue & Bertie", which we read during our virtual time on Wednesday.
Upon request we read the book again at snack time. It is a beautifully illustrated book about extending help to those in need, being open to something (or someone) new, sharing your culture or perspective of the world, and inclusion.
The book ends with the sentence "And Blue and Bertie remained the very best of friends."
