Mapping Our World!
(Stories from both Monday & Tuesday)
Today, inspired by the two beautiful maps made by Olivia and Grace, we drew our own maps. Lane was still thinking about maps when she came in this morning, so she brought in an atlas of the world. See a selection of maps below.
This morning Andy and Aida began work on Fletcher’s birthday committee. They asked Fletcher what color he might like on his pot:
Fletcher: Green, that’s the only color I like.
Andy: What animals do you like?
Fletcher: Maybe a snake?
Aida: What do you want on your pot?
Fletcher: I do like summer, when bees are buzzing. I do like trains. I do like hiking and camping.
Andy and Aida got to work painting the background. Tomorrow the group will add some other details that Fletcher had mentioned.
Maren and Nora helped edit the Yoda book. By looking at real books, they decided that to add a dedication page. Maren and Nora also spent time adding more dialogue to the book, to make it a bit more dynamic to read.
After snack the full group reviewed the changes and explored what book jackets include about the authors and illustrators. Each child then dictated what she/he wanted to say.
We were outside for an hour today. In addition to testing out some new spray bottles that the school recently purchased, there was also sand play, swinging, climbing and more.
