Chickadees, Feb 19
Today the children worked hard together to gather the necessary materials for a fire. They learned the word 'tinder', the small fuel that the 'baby fire' can eat. We melted wax on the fire and made fire starters that we will use (and send home!) next week. Observing the melting wax was a highlight, and the sizzling sound the cotton balls made when dipped! Carving is a favourite activity, with more time in the tool circle with the warmer weather, as is throwing snow at each other in a spy like game! Using our eyes to notice objects out of place, the afternoon Chickadees tried a Walking sit spot, slowing down their feet to notice non-natural items placed in their path. With each pass through the area, they were able to notice more. A great practice!
