"I love this. It's so pretty." - CC
Today we are continuing our mosaic work and the Explorers could not be more proud of their work in progress. But as we worked enthusiastically, we realized we were running low on materials. How could we collect more? We make them ourselves! But, we have to be same with our tools.
" What would happen if we smashed tiles and a piece comes out and we aren't wearing shoes?" - Emilia
"Keep your fingers and hands far away because your hand could be crushed if someone is using a hammer." - Ellie
"I'd put something safe down." - Emilia
"Tell someone 'please don't come near my tile' because they'll know not to come near or get hurt." - Abby
Practicing Our Breathing Exercises
"Sometimes you get off track or upset and you take breathes and try again." - Ada
Everyday, after our outside time, the Explorers take time in the afternoons to recenter themselves with some breathing exercises. These are led by both children and adults. After we do 3-4 exercises, we take a minute to do some much enjoyed meditation.
