today at CSS

This morning the Clear Spring School first grade students made hand held abacus. They are working on their numbers and beginning to move naturally from finger counting and counting of objects to abstract representation of numbers. This can be helped with a simple hand held abacus.

This afternoon, the 2nd and 3rd grade students and I built their puppet stage in the classroom. It won't be completed until the curtain is sewn, but today we built the stage and added closet rods to support curtains and the cover they hide behind for performances. The children have made puppets and are ready to begin writing and practicing plays.
