Happy 5th Birthday, Cannon!
It was a great day to celebrate our friend Cannon, who will turn 5 on Valentine's Day! We started the day by having the school sing "Happy Birthday" at Sing-Along! Cannon's family provided a special snack and we read two chapters from "My Father's Dragon!" Pod A created an absolutely perfect gift that featured Ninja Turtles, Gorillas, and Cannon's name. Many thanks to Cannon's family for such a fun and delicious day!
Jill: "You can tell us in two more days how it really feels to be 5 years old."
Cannon: "I'll have even more energy!"
Today was Valentine's Day/Pajama Day!

Our day was filled with celebrations. We enjoyed sing-along, delivering valentines, and pajama day! We took some socially distant, maskless, pajama portraits, and noticed that Lane and Nora were both wearing pink and white stripes. Cannon finished his self-portrait while his friends worked on other watercolors. We looked at patterns and sequence in our cuisenaire rod work. Of course, there was also time for messages, construction, and running around outside.

Today in Pod A, we had a ton of fun delivering Valentines to all of our friends in both pods. All the children were so excited about what they had received in their bag. Andy said, "I cannot wait. This is a special Valentine's Day."
We also had an exciting experiment in the studio featuring some plaster and a collection of hundreds of little tiny beads! Some of the children remembered using this material back in the Brown Room when we made birthday presents for each other out of plaster. This time we used liquid watercolors to change the color of the plaster. We hope to make more again next week.
Outside, Aida and Olivia worked together making a house for Hop Hop. Olivia said, "Here's her lettuce. She guards her lettuce." Aida said, "It's almost wake up time for her, and it's almost her birthday. Should we wake her up? I think she likes it."
Wishing a very happy birthday to our friend Cannon! Have a nice long weekend, everyone!
