They say that we need introverts because in their quiet reflection, they often provide the ideas and inspirations that lead us. We love that in Emma’s quiet way, she unknowingly, while following her own interests, changed the course of our classroom. We could not have anticipated how things would change when she simply brought to school a few fans that she had made with Joyce in after care.
The fans sparked the “Fans and Guns” game that brought the once separate boys and girls of the Meadow Room together.
Even with this, Emma and her close friends remained out of the frenzy, quietly enjoying their own type of play with each other.
Emma took on the challenge one day of making a fan as big as she could by attaching many fans together. Sophie said “if she keeps working on it everyday it could be a whole circle”.
The fans have also made a circle of our school as we have now connected with many of the other classrooms, all the way through middle school.
