Welcome to Jackson, Ava's younger brother!
The children are working on two types of collages inspired by Matisse. In one collage, they place shapes of various colors on paper and in the other, they first tear paper from magazines and then glue it on to paper. Children who are able to use scissors then cut their collage and, after a few steps, they create an animal or object.
The older children also did a science experiment with Laura that entailed making predictions about what will protect an egg from breaking when it is dropped. They enjoyed both predicting and watching eggs either crack or land safely on the table.
Duckalina has not proven to be better at the job of guarding the alphabet. The children have told her that she shouldn't boast that she is better than her brother, and that he is nice. She will try to take their advice to heart.
Some children are writing stories that they will act out at a later date.
It was fun to see Ruhi on FaceTime this week. She told us that it was nighttime in India and showed us some of her toys.
Maybe by the end of next week, spring will finally show its colors.
