Another wonderful week under our belts, and we had some beautiful moments!
Thank you all for joining us on SeeSaw, Zoom, and FaceTime! We cannot say enough how special it is to see your faces, hear your voices, and continue developing our relationships with each one of you!
Monday: Dress Up and Dramatic Play
It was so much fun to see so many of you dressed up in costumes! I'm wondering if you stayed in costume the rest of the day? Or, are there some fun stories or dances you could create while you're in your costume? Here are som
Drawing during small groups on Wednesday
We saw so many different tools and types of paper to use. Please continue to share your drawings on SeeSaw. We want to see what you're drawing, what you're using, and even where you might be drawing (outside, at the table, on the floor, etc.).
"Contamination" of knowledge/ideas
During one of our small group conversations, Sylvie began to draw the teapot and cappuccino cup that was sitting in front of her. The group was able to see her as she worked, and it sparked ideas for others. So much of our learning comes from our social interactions, and this beautiful moment made us realize that while we are not together physically, we can still share ideas and experiences in meaningful ways.
Happy Birthday Audrey!
Today we got to celebrate our sweet Audrey who turned 3 a few weeks ago! Birthday celebrations are so special at St. John's, and we are so grateful that so many people from our community joined us this morning to celebrate Audrey! Our community and connections are what make everything meaningful. These relationships are irreplaceable, and it is so wonderful to find new ways to maintain them.
Audrey's family shared some sweet memories of some of Audrey's greatest adventures, both around the world and close to home! We even got to see Audrey and Melanie before they were in the Brown Room together; what a special memory!
"I like a horse or maybe a unicorn." - Audrey
Before we left school, Audrey shared with us that she wanted a horse or a unicorn. This came as quite the surprise to those of us who knew how much Audrey loved owls and hedgehogs, but Audrey reminded us in that moment that you can have rich and varied interests! Thank you all for taking time to think about Audrey and her gift. You guys were so thoughtful and kind, and the variety of materials and languages was exciting and inspiring! Be sure to check out SeeSaw for some videos and photos of other gifts!
Audrey walked around her candle three times, and with the help of her sister, she blew out her candle as we sang "Happy Birthday"!
We all love you so much Audrey, and hope that you enjoyed your celebration!
Thank you for all of your feedback on SeeSaw this week!
