This morning the children were very busy outside! Cannon suggested using the bubbles so we got out the wands and the bubble mix. Many of the children explored making bubbles.
Recently there has been a growing interest in the bird house. The children often ask a teacher to get it down from the tree so that they can inspect and explore it.
Olivia brought some play doh to school. She put it in the birdhouse and soon a group of children were trying to figure out how to get it out. The children tested theories: shaking it, using a shovel, inserting a twig:
Problem solving occurs naturally during play.
The children also went in two small groups to preview the book fair books.
Towards the end of snack Wolf started a conversation with the friends that were still eating:
Wolf: I have pumpkins at my home.
Maren: I got pumpkins at the pumpkin patch with mommy and daddy and grandpa and grandma.
Ada: I got mine at the grocery store with mommy.
Melanie: What about you Cannon?
Cannon: Three. Outside.
Evelyn: One, two, three.
Ellie: I'm going to the pumpkin patch with mommy and dad. It's at a church.
We also played in the classroom!
Another GREAT day in the Brown Room!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!
