Tucker Pod B...
Yesterday, when we were checking our mailboxes, we noticed that some mailboxes were empty, and felt a lot of sympathy for the children who had no mail! Many of those children are in the Brown Room. Here is a little excerpt from that conversation...
Olivia: Uh oh. Jane only has one!
Grace: And Lily, my poor sister, has none!
Olivia: (checking more boxes) NONE….None!!
Grace: Audrey has none.
Olivia: This one doesn’t have one, Daniel’s teacher!
Grace: And Jessica’s doesn’t have any one.
Olivia: Look at Jill’s, look, look at Brooke’s and Jill’s!
Grace: Even Wilder only has two? That’s not enough!
Aida: In my house, I’m going to make some mail for Sylvie.

Here's some quick snapshots of our work at the store. Today with the addition of some puff balls to our "Store" materials, we began to sell ice cream.
We can't wait to tell you about how we feel the "Store" is bolstering some of our relationships between the children in our small Pod B setting. We can elaborate a little on October 29th at Classroom Stories Night! Mark your calendars :)
Lane, “Should we put these kids to bed? We need to give them a bath, go potty, brush teeth and turn on their nightlights.”
(Bunnies have bath.)
Lane, “Let’s go sit by the fire and watch TV kiddos. It’s TV time, right Papa?”
(They go downstairs)
Lane, “Don’t get burned by the fire.”
Palmer, “We need to put the kids to bed.”
Lane, “Ok, you carry brother; I’ll carry sister.”
(They take the kids upstairs to bed.)
Palmer, “Goodnight! Sleep tight!”
(Mother and father bunny return downstairs)
Palmer, “What should we do now that the kids are asleep?”
(Dakota is the mommy bunny)
Dakota, “Im gonna put it on the table for you guys to eat. Here you go sister bunny. Here you go brother bunny. Now I’ll wash the dishes. (Makes water sound.) Ok, let’s go to bed.
(Gigi as brother bunny to Dakota the dad bunny.)
Gigi, “Didn’t you promise I could work with you after dinner?”
Dakota (as the dad), “Mother, can you give sister a bath and put her to bed?”
(Bunnies have dinner.)
Dakota (as dad), “Brother we’re going to do work.”
Dakota, “Let’s go sit by the fire. Do you like it when the days are so beautiful?”
Dakota, “Ok, let’s go to bed.”
(Bunnies go upstairs)
Dakota, “I’ll give you a bath.”
Dakota to Gigi, “Brother you can come do work every night.”
It is so nice to have a new provocation in our room! Thank you to the families that have donated to the school through the Book Fair Wish Tree!
