Today's blog is brought to you by OLIVER!!
Oliver describes the process of placing the ink on the screen and pulling the squeegee across.
"I like how we spreaded it out. We used this thing to rub it all over. It was upside down and we wiped wiped wiped wiped."
"That’s the castle that we started to make. We started making walls. To making it look like a real castle. I was going to make a key, but I don’t think it’s there. The castle has to be recharged because it has lots of secret passwords. That’s the special key, it uses all the power. It’s supposed to be filled with lots of electricity." - Oliver
Using Floor Plans in the Construction Area
We had a construction challenge today: Can you follow a floor plan as you build. Lane thought the floor plan looked like a farm with gates, and proceeded to build that. Palmer referred to the floor plan of the school and built the various classrooms, the bell tower, and the stair leading to the playground.
Gigi - I built a house. I liked having a plan to work with, but I also like my imagination because I don't need to use a plan.
Group Game: Stone Soup!
We played a cooperative game called Stone Soup today. It was so exiting that we were shouting and cheering through the experience. By the start of the second round, everyone was playing. At one point Lane asked, "Could you please screech more quietly?" It was a lot of fun and we'll have to get it out again!
Gigi - It was fun! People were covering their eyes because getting the "fire out" (card) is scary!
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
