Pod B Backwards Day!
It was cold outside! You can see the three girls implemented some fancy footwork in an effort to keep warm. We also ran around, built animal environments, and played hide-and- seek. We lasted about 45 minutes. Luckily, we had a great way to warm up making and serving hot chocolate!
Some thoughts about this snack:
Cannon - Even the big marshmallows are melting.
Palmer - If you take a lot (of the hot chocolate) it's hot. If you take a little, it's not so hot.
Nora - I love hot chocolate!
Palmer - I love the marshmallows the best.
During snack we also thought about making more bird's nests. We discussed using wire, since it a materials we have not used that much this year. The children know the properties of wire, as is evident in these comments:
Palmer - The birds might get poked and hurt.
Cannon - That was my idea, too. And we don't want that to happen, do we?
Lane - We could put foam on the wire ends, so it won't poke.
Palmer - Or fabric.
Lane - We could sew them a little pillow.
Nora - And a fuzzy blanket.
In the studio...
Driving a car to the North Pole...
Oliver: "While traveling the loop loop, we thought we made a wrong turn, but the loop loop in the end put us in the right place. Just took us a little out of the way. The go stick really propelled us through that loooong loop!"
Soon after, Dakota's giraffes caught "a fever and a cold" and needed to be rushed to the doctor in an ambulance.
Outside we played hide and seek, and dug for buried treasure. Even Molly joined in!
