Strong and competent monkey bodies
While drawing their monkeys, Frannie and Luke thoughtfully considered details about them in order to give them personalities, movement and a connection to home and family. After drawing a couple drafts, Frannie and Luke added fur pieces and details to their monkeys, including eyes, mustaches and expressive tails.
I'm making arms. They are connecting to branches. - Luke, considering the body position of his monkey, intending for him to be able to swing
It (the tail) needs to be curled up so it can hang on. - Frannie
Monkeys have tails like my kitty (lovie).
I'm gonna attach them together because it's a baby and a mama. - Frannie, wishes for her monkey to have a family
Tita is gonna wonder why I have fur on my body. - Frannie, noticing pieces of fur on her shirts after cutting
(drawing ears) So it can hear everything in the whole wide world. My monkey can only hear things in Washington DC. And I think Lukie's can hear everything even from France because the ears are gigantic. - Frannie, sharing her theory of the ear size of the monkey being connected to the monkey's ability to hear, factoring in distance
Our cooking required a multi-step process, sequencing and careful handling of the ingredients (e.g. cracking and whisking eggs).
That's raw (chicken). You can't eat it because you get a tummy ache. We need to cook it and we need to go wash our hands because all of this is raw. Even the eggs. This is a chicken egg. The chicken is gonna go first in the flour. - Luke
It feels massage-ey. - Frannie, rubbing the breadcrumbs between her fingers
These are all muscles (pointing to the chicken tenders). I love muscles. - Luke
How did you know that? - Ines
My brain told me. - Luke
It's so fun, Luke, right? - Frannie
Yes! Because it's so blobby. - Luke
It's gonna be so good when we cook it. The breadcrumbs will make
it really good. - Frannie
It makes it super crunchy. It smells so good. The eggs and
the breadcrumbs and the chicken. - Luke
This is the color for the sauce. - Luke
It doesn't have to be exactly like it. It's always different. - Jade
It looks like yoghurt. - Frannie
It looks like blood to me. - Luke
I do this. It looks like this color when I mix tomato sauce and sour cream. - Frannie
Today we got to celebrate our friend Jade together with her mom and dad. Her dad, Tim, read a great story about a dragon that likes to be a vegetarian. Many of us tried Jade's special sauce for the first time and we LOVED it!
"Wow, I actually like it. I like it, Jade. Can we have more sauce?" - Finlay
