This week and last, we have been doing all sorts of activities related to music during our music camp. We have loved having alumni join us for this summer camp! It’s so sweet to see them reconnect with past classmates and help younger children learn about Tulip Tree. We have made (and continue to make) our own instruments using tins, film canisters, beads, rubber bands, bottle caps and hot glue. We are lucky to have a special guest teacher, Heidi, teach us many new songs and share tons of different instruments. We have made a water xylophone, made tiny props out of clay and drawings to go with songs we have learned. Here are some photos of what we have been up to!
Each year around this time we reflect on our year. What explorations did this year begin with? Where did the children’s ideas take us? What did we wonder about? How did we use the 100 languages to explore our wonderings? What did we discover? How did our discoveries lead to knew questions? So much happens throughout the year, sometimes it is hard to remember all that we have done by the time it comes to an end. Here are some of the photos I found while looking back-
These past couple of weeks we have been enjoying the summer-like weather in the shade of our Tulip, Oak, Chestnut and Apple trees. Thank you trees for giving us a cool place to explore and play! We love you!
