Hello Connections Families! Today was the first day of session two for our friends, with some new and old faces joining us!
After welcoming all of our friends into the classroom, we engaged in morning meeting. During morning meeting, Ms. Ninah introduced herself and Ms. Shan, and we went around to everyone to introduce themselves and give their favorite ice cream flavor.
"Cotton candy!" -Lucas and Michael "And also chocolate" -Michael "Mint chocolate chip!" -Ramsay
After morning meeting, we had a picnic snack of Goldfish and blueberries. After snack, we started on our morning provocations. The project of the day was weaving for name tags. Our friends were invited to weave and add in different materials to a threaded board to personalize for their portfolios. We also had some friends building with LEGOs, doing puzzles, as well as playing in dramatic play.
"Rainbow ribbon! My favorite" -Remy "I'm gonna cut some of it so I can save some for others" -Charlotte about cutting washi tape for her weaving
When we went to the outdoor classroom, our friends enjoyed playing with trucks, exploring the rope swinging rock climbing wall, as well as going on an Orbeez scavenger hunt. Remy and Cape found a worm and named him, but then reburied him to return him to his habitat.
"What are you gonna name him?" -Cape "I don't know... Hamster. Isn't that funny?" -Remy "Lets call him Juju instead!" -Remy
After exploring the outdoor classroom, we went back inside to continue our morning provocations then have lunch. Our friends enjoyed a picnic lunch today and then had a little more time in the outdoor classroom.
After returning from outside, we had afternoon provocations which included Twister, LEGOs, dramatic play, message center, stories, and construction. Our friends really enjoyed playing Twister with Ms. Tess, and also enjoyed hearing stories from her and Ms. Maggie as well. We look forward to seeing all of our friends back tomorrow for another fun filled day at camp!
