It was a very busy week and a half, as friends have started coming to the Pre-K Art Studio for art groups! For children that were Pre-K 3’s last year, they acted as real leaders in showing new children around the Studio. We spent some time noticing, wondering and asking questions about different spaces and materials that children observed in the new space. Children that are new to CCPCS this year were very curious about the tarantula, Mister Skinny Legs, that lives in the Studio. Friends that learned about spiders last year, and were a part of the naming process, helped introduce him (from the safety and comfort of his tank) to other children, and let them know that there wasn’t anything to be scared of!
Greyson: There’s a spider that has hair on him. He’s brown and orange.
Dafnee: I love your board and your lamp!
Claire: Why is there a classroom right next to yours?
Christian: I hear kids next door saying, “I have a block.” I bet they are building.
Siah: The spider is moving. I think he likes your story!
Siena: It’s a little room… that’s so funny!
Nneka: Wow! Look at this place… it’s so cool!
Amen: The sink makes a noise. A really loud noise.
Luke: This is the most awesomest room ever!
Esther: I’m scared the spider will get out of the cage and come to us.
Amen: Is that an octopus in the cage? He a spider? He gonna eat us!
Florentina: We get to go back to the back table when were done and the back table is always so fun!
