When Brandon arrived at school today, he was so excited to show us his brand new yellow race car shirt of Lightning McQueen. Hudson, Max, and Brandon did very hard work as they focused on working on their on their wooden piece collage. We then had Morning Meeting in the Sunflowers' classroom with the other classes. We then sang Hello How Are You and today's theme was instruments so each child took turns saying their name and the name of an instrument as went around the circle.
After Dance with Elizabeth, we moved the tables to drive cars in shaving cream mixed with paint on the floor. "Wow! Cool!" said Hudson as he began to move the cars and his hands in the shaving cream. "It's so nice!" said Brandon. "Awesome!" said Max. The more we drove the cars and moved around the messier it became. And it happened...for the first time this year... it happened! Brandon got messy! Not just a little messy but very. very messy. "This is crazy!" Brandon realized as he looked at his clothes covered in paint and shaving cream. "I'm Mr. Messy!" he then said with so much pride! Hooray Brandon!!!
For Free Play, Max talked on the phone and played with Hudson and Brandon with and magnet tiles and pegs. Before lunch, we sang High Hopes and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Then we read The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Suess. What a very messy and fun day!
