We got new centers underway today. Lots of stuff happening—pancakes, observing the behavior of fish, molding moon sand, and, in my center, learning to draw stars on paper that we'd fold into paper airplanes.

The paper airplane design we used I learned from my son's kindergarten teacher, Mr. Mike Butler. It's a good flyer. Martin's plane flew particularly well.

Later in the year, starting around December, the kindergarten class will stay until 1:30 on Wednesdays. On the first Wednesday each month they will be involved in a school-wide activity we call Tribes.

Today in Tribes we did a pumpkin hunt in the back field. The students ranging from first through sixth grades had a lot of fun. Here are some photos taken this afternoon back there.

When a student found something, they stood by it till the end

First graders could find things quite well
