It was great to see you at Classroom Stories Night last night! We appreciate all your support!
Today we had a fantastic day! We were busy with a myriad of activities. Some friends had a go with weaving, others collaged with tissue paper, there was building, kitchen play, painting, seed discussion and fun outdoors as well.
Weaving takes concentration and patience. In the video below, Palmer and Ada do an excellent job with their work:
We were lucky to have some lovely tissue paper left over from Classroom Stories Night. Today was a first opportunity to collage with tissue on transparencies at the light table. Ellie loved it! She created 3! Maren made 2 and Gigi also made one:
Evelyn started a pastel drawing that later morphed into a collage as well. Olivia did some drawing.
Gigi and Cannon collaborated on a building project. Ada opted to build alone and tried to create shelter for the giraffes.
Palmer and Wolf were very busy in the kitchen. They made broccoli soup, pancakes, coffee and other delicious treats. Thanks to the boys, Jecca was fortunate enough to have a feast before morning meeting!
Evelyn proudly took off her shoes and socks to show her friends that her toenails are painted white. Ada then showed her painted toenails to the group. Soon, there was dramatic play about pedicures happening! Evelyn pretended to paint Olivia's toe nails and even waved her hand back-and-forth in an effort to dry them. Ellie and Cannon were both keen for a turn, but unfortunately we ran out of time.
We looked at seeds and talked about them in class again today. It was the first time the Wednesday/Thursday/Friday friends had seen them.
During our second meeting we looked at the seeds again in smaller groups. At the very end of the discussion Gigi shared what she knew about growing seeds into plants:
And then outside, Ada was inspired to do some dramatic play about planting seeds:
Don't forget that tomorrow is backwards day and we will start outside. It's been chilly in the mornings so please ensure your children are dressed appropriately!
