This afternoon while outside for PM Group, stringing beads and leaves onto pipe cleaners was offered. Some of the children made plans to string the leaves and beads in patterns. Some of children also made tangible plans for their finished work; for instance, by creating a ring or bracelet.
Above, Miss Sinclair and Lexie work towards finishing her stringing project.
