Thank you and farewell to Jessica!
This morning the classes met outside on the playground to give Jessica some gifts. In addition to many messages made both at home and school (which Jessica will keep in an album that she was also gifted) many children worked on a clay pineapple vase (pineapple is Jessica's symbol). Jessica was very touched.
During snack Jessica popped by to show us her progress putting the messages in the album.
Jen works at St. John's Monday - Wednesday. So she also came by to say farewell and wish the children well.
Andy and Aida enjoyed lots of game playing today. They played Too Many Monkeys and Pesky Pirates.
Andy asked, "Should we play Pesky Pirates?"
Aida answered, "I don't really remember how to play."
Andy said, "I'll teach you."
Maren and Nora enjoyed playing with kinetic sand.
Making connections between experiences, Nora said to Maren, "This is like a mosaic. Look!"
Backwards Day was a blast! The children also enjoyed watercolor painting, message making, building and memory.
