Emerywood - Crafts, Crafts and More Crafts Plus Olympics

Crafts can teach a number of different lessons and today we saw that in action. The youngest students drew, counted, recited their colors, listened quietly to directions, learned how to stand in a straight line, and be good helpers. The Skittles game was a big hit especially once the kids learned they got to eat the candy. The Olympic games were a bit more sophisticated since the participants were 3rd and 4th graders. They did various relays and worked off a lot of excess energy. Their teachers were very grateful! The Ruth teachers all received a bag of classroom supplies and I do believe I heard little shouts of joy when they saw what was inside. Thanks Emerywood for making this a fantastic, fun-filled day for students and teachers alike.

Since Wednesday and Thursday will be filled to the brim with activities of all kinds we took the afternoon to see a bit of the city - Revolution Square and the Village Museum. After a leisurely supper it was back to work getting everything prepped for tomorrow.
