Today we followed some interests that seem to be solidifying among the children.  While painting, playing with blocks, or using play-dough these past two months the students have been able to collect a variety of skills and interest connected to these experiences.  We did all of these things today, but in slightly different ways to bring some novelty back to the experiences.  Painting was done as a group mural, two students were pulled aside to make play-doug, and those building with blocks were encouraged to work with each other with an goal in mind.
