The Adults Have To Model

I have had these shapes on our shelf since September. They are rarely used. Why? 
a) Are they boring? 
b) Do the kids not know the endless possibilities available to them? 

I reckon B. So I began playing, then one came over. "Can I build with you?". Then another child came...and another...

Sometimes the students just need to see what is possible.

Everything Is Something...

...and this is most certainly a flower. (Children lying out of picture as stem and leaves).

Organizing As One Voice

"Slides are fun. This is sad."

Summer is approaching and the Sliders want to slide. Please feel free to contact your city councillor (with your child) to ask when the slide at the park will be fixed. Strength in numbers.

With The Sharks

A few weeks ago, we went on an underwater expedition using Google Expedition and some Virtual Reality goggles. We went underwater. 

"Why are people walking with the sharks?". 
There are books for that. It may have been 3 weeks later, but that boy's question needs to be honored. So we began reading about the sport that is Scuba Diving. 
"How does oxygen go into there?"
 I'm sure there's a book for that too...
