On Wednesday’s at CCPCS, children participate in Service, which can range from cleaning their classroom to working on service projects throughout the school. Every week, I pick up one “Glitter Grabber” from each Pre-K classroom and we work on cleaning smocks, palettes, tables, chairs, etc. in the Studio.
Today, once the Studio was sparkling again, Maia asked if she could continue drawing on a pumpkin that she wanted to give to Mister Skinny Legs. She started this project the other day and was overjoyed that the rest of the Glitter Grabbers wanted to help out as well!
Maia: Can we decorate the pumpkin for Mister Skinny Legs? We could draw things that he would like.
Elijah: Let’s draw bugs for him.
Nneka: And crickets!
Maia: Yeah, we can make his favorite food. He loves crickets!
William: How do we know how to draw a cricket? Can we look at the crickets?
Maia: Yeah, then we know how they look. Don’t forget to draw the food. The food looks like circles and lines.
Elijah: I like crickets. I want to see them hop. I’ve seen them do it at recess.
William: What do they eat anyways? It looks like watermelon.
Elijah: It smells like oranges.
Maia: Yeah, stinky orange. Hey guys, are you going to help me with this pumpkin or not? We have to color the whole thing.
Nneka: I’ll make a fly.
Elijah: I’ll make the zombie crickets.
William: Yeah, let’s make zombie crickets because some of the crickets are dead.
