🎀Happy 4th Birthday Ellie!🎀
It was such a joy to celebrate Ellie's birthday today! We got to read two books with Ellie and her family: "Uni the Unicorn" and "Amelia Bedelia". Then we looked at some lovely family photos. Ellie said, "That's Grammy and daddy and me." Then Ellie walked around the candle 4 times. Finally, we saw some of the amazing presents her friends created for her!
👀I Spy With My Little Eye 👀
Our class experimented with playing I Spy over Zoom and discovered it was a great success. Cannon saw the first image and instantly said, "There’s even a dinosaur!" Each player described a mystery object which the group had to find. Grace said "I spy something blue with a snail shape in a circle" to describe a swirl design inside the glass.
We had a lot of fun working on puzzles with you!
Children had a great conversation while sculpting play-doh together. Read more below...
Palmer: You can make a hamburger out of my play-doh. Lettuce, tomato, cheese, and some french fries. You can also make a waffle out of a plate.
Lane: I'm gonna start with purple. I'm making a rainbow. The white is going to be my clouds. Because I'm making a rainbow world.
Gigi: I'm dressed up as Annie.
Evelyn: I watched Annie! Do you wanna sing the song?
Gigi: (singing) It's a hard knock life for us.
Olivia: (To Isabelle) You make snowflakes and I'm gonna make the snowman.
Palmer: I have a couch for my porch. It came in a really big box. I built a castle out of it.
Gigi: I'm making a snowman and a worm house.
Palmer: Look at this awesome playdoh machine I have. It squishes playdoh into the shape I want it to be.
Lane: I'm trying to squish my playdoh all together. I'm gonna make puffy clouds.
Olivia: I'm making winter. Even I made this - and it's ice.
Gigi: This door leads out. (indicates worm house) The mama is snuggled watching her babies from a rock.
Emilia: My dad gave me an ice cream scooper. We're gonna have a restaurant and a bakery and it does deliveries. Me, PJ and Alex. It's called "the three cousins".
Lane: I just need one more thing. A star on top. It's my specialty.
Olivia: I have my chef coat on.
Emilia: (also wearing a white coat) We have a science kit and I'm a scientist.
Palmer: I have the Ghostbuster house and they're scientists.
Gigi: I'm gonna be a dentist when I grow up. And a hairdresser.
Hearing Each Other's Voices
We've been so pleased to see the Rainey Room children use the daily Zoom calls as a way to strengthen their connection to each other. We can't wait to talk again soon. Have a lovely weekend!
