News of the Day 12-11-2008

  • During arrival we worked at the project table with "recycled materials". A favorite of the group as we sing "reduce, reuse, recycle... bottles, paper, cans." Some of us also read books and talked about growing our beards.

  • During Hello Meeting we had our Ball Greeting where we tossed a ball to a friend while greeting that person thereby practicing both social and gross motor skills. We then read 'Ant and Honey Bee What a Pair!' by Megan McDonald.
  • During Explore we all rent right to the Block Area and continued to build upon Otis and James's structure from Tuesday. We then decided to build a tent and campfire in the meeting area. The whole group had a great time camping and want to get right back to it on Tuesday!

  • For Snack we ate rice cakes with hummus and carrots and cukes. (thanks to James's family)
  • During Morning Meeting we talked about, and practiced the songs we are going to sing for our Winter Celebration. We read "Giggle, Giggle, Quack" by Doreen Cronin
  • Outside we pretended to be baby mice in the snow. We did a bunch of shoveling and broke up the frozen chunks of sand in the sandbox.
  • Lunch and goodbye.
