It was chilly this morning during Backwards Day but the children had fun playing superheroes, soccer, digging, building and playing the YES/NO game together as a class. In the YES/NO game, the players gather in the middle. One side is designated for yes answers and the opposite side for no answers. After hearing the question, the children race to their answer side. Here are some of the questions asked during the game:
Do you like broccoli?
Do you have a big brother?
Do you like the beach? (everyone said yes!)
Do you like pineapple pizza? (a very evenly split response)
Did you walk to school today?
Back in class, the children continued working on the Fairy Village 2.0. Today's work was around Lane's idea of shade. The children used leaves and pine branches to add shade to the village. They also incorporated their shrinky dink fairies.
Lane: We should use this to hold the shade up.
Olivia: I might tie it.
Palmer: They'll get sunburned!
Lane: We need to get them some sunscreen!
Melanie: Do fairies like to be hidden? Do they like to be cozy at nighttime?
Grace: Yes! I have an idea. We have to run everywhere, we have to look look look for the fairies. Let's go look now!
Cannon: They don't want to be sunburned or lost.
Palmer: They want to be hidden to escape big people like us.
Other happenings are the room: Emilia and Evelyn worked as vets taking care of sick animals, lego building, tracing fairies on the light table, construction and puzzles.
