We Decorate Our World: Our Decorated Rooms

The Earth Group has shown commitment as they enthusiastically worked to complete this project. Once the rooms were painted, the furniture was made. Creativity was needed as they chose recycled materials to make furniture. When looking at the rooms, one can see that each room is a reflection of the child who created it. It is such a wonderful feeling to see the pride in the children’s faces when they showed their room to others.  Equally wonderful was the appreciation that the other children had for one another’s work.

  1. I also love seeing the curiosity they display for one another's work. Isn't it a joy Deb?! I would have a bowl of goldfish added. What about you?

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.



How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.




I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
