Last week, I posted about Minna and her jet made out of Beautiful Junk. She had been working on it in her classroom and brought it to the Studio to make some additions. On Wednesday, I was spending some time in Ms.Lauchlan’s room and sat with Minna, AJ and Jasmine as they were building with Beautiful Junk. Everyone was engaged and excited about what they were building, as well as what their friends were creating.
Minna: Treasure, treasure, I putted two treasure. The gengine (engine) starts rumbling and it goes and goes and then blast off, it disappears. The orange bead was on the ground… I need it for the fire by the gengine. This box is their room. They can just go into the box to sleep and the driver will still fly the jet. It’s the jet bedroom… by the dungeon. Oh cool… a bell and a tiger button. That’s just what the jet needs! I got some cool things and some pretty things.
Jasmine: Can I watch what you’re doing? It’s not my work but I like it.
Minna: Yeah, bring a chair. I’ll show you.
Jasmine: I like this bell.
Minna: It’s a bell button… listen!
Jasmine: What’s this bottle for?
Minna: Smell… soap!
Jasmine: I wish you had something in there that smells like perfume. Minna, what’s this?
Minna: An alien from Mars.
Jasmine: Interesting yarn. Minna, that button looks like a ring my mom had from when she wedded herself.
Minna: That’s cool. Wait, I need to show you something.
Minna: And shiny! Jasmine, you and Ms.Cushner can always watch what I’m doing. Whenever you want, just come over to watch and maybe help if I ask!
