The children have been exploring our mark-making tools in the studio and message area. The markers, crayons, and colored pencils have been the most frequently used, and the pencil sharpener has been a focal point as well.

As Cedar worked, she communicated with her words, facial expressions, and movements. When one position did not work, she calmly moved Janie's leg until she could find a solution. Once Janie was wearing both shoes, she moved to the sink to wash her hands. Cedar rushed to be by her side, and assisted her with getting soap from the dispenser. Unprompted, Cedar stepped down and grabbed two paper towels. She waited patiently behind Janie, and then she offered her one of the paper towels. Janie replied with a "thank you", and they left the bathroom.
