Circle at 10:30am with Monica, just after our opening game/activity, to introduce the day’s theme + schedule. We’re practicing this opening for our group every week, but it is not required. This week, let’s talk about asking before we touch things that aren’t ours.
The owl pellets have arrived! We’ll set up our dissection tables + get started right after our circle. Those who ordered owl pellets, we’ll use paper plates + the tiny tools provided to figure out what prey our owls ate.
This week, we’re rock painting, making rock pets + whatever else we wanna do with rocks. So…bring rocks! If anyone has acrylic paint we can use or even sharpies work well, grab some of that/those. We have paint brushes in our art bin to share. I’ll bring a tarp to spread in the grass as a work area for this project, but we’ll need another one as well.
We’re also using spray paint to make silly trophies out of our stash for our field day celebration. Hopefully we have enough trophies for this – if you have any old ones to dedicate to this cause, we’ll use them! Let’s brainstorm some silly games + trophy names – like “Longest Hair Flip” or “Most Dramatic Eyeroll” – so that everyone goes home with a monster trophy that matches their persona.
This week, it’s all optional! Please bring:
Jordan/Germé Family – It’s your turn to bring a game/activity in the morning!
ROCKS! Bring rocks to paint or rocks to pound
Spray paint for the stockpile, so we have choices
Any old trophies you don’t mind sharing
Lunch, snacks + drinks for your people
