We also practiced cooperation in learning how to play "Bump" in math, how to clean up our classroom between transitions from art/activities to learning time on the rug, and the kids gave feedback on how they did with cleanup from a range of 1-5, 1 being "it looks like a guinea pig's cage", and 5 being "it looks like a clean kindergarten classroom." They love that analogy--feel free to use it at home!
Finally, for those who were not skiing on Thursday afternoon, we hiked up through a bit of Shirley Canyon, which proved to be more difficult than normal. The rains on Wednesday had created a layer of ice over the snow, which some of the students could traverse without breaking through to the powdery snow underneath, but it definitely proved to be a challenge for the adults. They learned a bit about the differences in how weight affects snow hiking, and practiced cooperation by building tunnels in the snow. Though some of us got stuck and it took their teacher much longer than them to get through the snow, we all had a fun time! Have a great weekend, and I'm looking forward to next week!
