Today we spent our last day enjoying a time honored favorite: watercoloring! After enjoying some books and jokes during morning meeting we shared brushes and pallets, creating rainbows, oceans, boats and flowers!
Today, Jack took the time to build a sandcastle that was later destroyed by a mystery creature! We used our best investigative skills to figure out who it might be. Lochie and Jack quickly found a mystery footprint which took up the majority of the detective work. Using pastels and paper, they shaded the shoe imprints and took it around to everyone they could find to see if they could make a match. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite a Cinderella story, and we left the outdoor classroom still ruminating over who or what could have made the print and destroyed Jack’s castle!
Lochie: I have a great idea, maybe we can give the paper to everyone.
Jack: do you think it’s really a mysterious creature?
Cc: it’s not my foot,
George: it’s not me either!
Lochie: guys put all your mysterious footprints there and maybe someone will know and they will take the picture, then we follow the prints!
Jack: the mysterious footprint has a round part
George: it’s definitely is a kid
Cc: I think it’s Violet’s.
Jack: the mysterious footprint does look like a curve and then a straight Line
Lichee: let’s split up and look for clues!
Jack: No, no, no, We need to look together to find the clues
Lochie: I’m making green for the leaves.
Elle: I did blue for my leaves
Lochie: What color should the shell be?
Marley: I’m not done yet, I’m just doing some dots.
Violet: I’m doing pink in the middle.
George: I don’t want to paint inside, just green.
Lochie: I’m adding blue around. I’ll just do a little bit of green!
