Materials have the potential to be relocated and reimagined through the children's solitary and interactive play. Getting to this takes some time, especially when adjusting to a new environment, people, and a daily schedule. Although still novices, the children's newness will eventually be replaced with a sense of comfort and belonging in the classroom without eliminating curiosity, wonder, discovery, and creativity. However, there is a heightened sense of novelty as the children continue using familiar materials in new ways, exploring new materials in new ways, and enjoying familiar materials in the company of burgeoning friendships. Gradually, the children are displaying new and increasing connections in their discovery of materials and in each other. Through both shared and peripheral experiences, we are progressing together with a commonality of newness.
