Week Two of Two Weeks Outdoors - October 8
The children were busy watching Mr. Buckley fixing the bridge on the hill today. They were asking him lots of questions about what he was doing and why.
Mr. Buckley had filled the wheelbarrow up with some dirt and was putting it around the end of the bridge. Once the wheelbarrow was emptied he asked the children if they wanted to help fill it up with sand. Of course they did. Off everyone went to the sand pit. William, Dylan, Ethan, Rebecca, Anassa, and Teo each found a shovel to use to fill up the wheelbarrow with sand. There was lot of team working and helpfulness to get the job done.
Once Mr. Buckley had enough sand in the wheelbarrow Nethra, Ethan and William used their muscles to help push it up the hill.
Once the wheelbarrow was emptied Mr. Buckley brought the wheelbarrow back to the sand pit for another load. William said to Dylan “Let’s use the bowls.” William started to fill up his bowl with sand. Then he dumped the sand into the wheelbarrow. Dylan joined in with the plan. Soon everyone was filling up the pails and bowls with sand first, then they would dump the sand into the wheelbarrow.
Ethan had started to use the construction truck to fill up the wheelbarrow with sand. He was very determined to get the sand into the wheelbarrow with the scoop of the truck. Ethan had to do a little bit of problem solving and had lots of determination before he figured out how to get some sand into the wheelbarrow with the truck.
