We needed a little ice breaker before class yesterday. I read one of my favorite books, My Life With The Wave, written by Catherine Cowan and illustrated by Mark Buehner. This did the trick and the children started chatting (and humming) while working on their paper doll portraits.

We created our own secret wish boxes,
a place where the children can place their secret wishes for the year.
There was also more mandala making.
Read about the positive effects of mandala making here.
Other examples of the students' work:

I have two more seats available in both of these sessions for October!
