In Literacy, we continued preparing for the writing of our constitution. We built structures using coffee stirrers and clay; the goal was to suspend a cylindrical block above the table’s surface. The children had some inventive solutions!

The second week of Creativity morning was quite successful. The children enjoyed building, coding, designing, and making. Mr. Anthony talked with the children about Symbols and worked with them to create their own. He also introduced them to stone stacking.

We nearly finished up the children’s presentations of their Five Things bags. We continued our constitution by hunting for rule sticky-notes around the room. We enjoyed a number of games in the afternoon, from Chess to Tell-a-Tale, a story-telling game.
