Mary Ann's Boat Show

Viv's Boat


Viv: The boat is magic and the reason why it can have books and suitcases is because they are specially waterproofed. She is going to the rain forest; next to the Red Sea.

Max Gimbel: 
"This is my boat! I am going to sail on it to London where I was born. When I get there I am going to find treasure!"

It was a submarine with wax to "glue" it down and corks when it was time to go back to the surface.

Launy's Boat--Wait! What?  A map of the World.  Launy...That's a long trip.  Your boat looks sea-worthy but...

Remote Farming...

You can keep Tammy's first graders off of the farm, but you can't keep them from farming. Some snapshots.



















The BNS Hens are free ranging it and munching on farm plants. Tammy's kids have suggestions for Johanna.





Plans to keep Hens from eating BNS farm crops.


Don't look so innocent Rubia!

Essential Worker: Johanna!!!!

Essential to the health of the Farm Critters and Crops and BNS students...Johanna has been Zooming with our Pre-K, K and 1st Graders...




Here she is on VIRTUAL Shore Day with Marisol's, Valerie's, Agnes's, Celso's, and Adel's class.  (K students recreated the shore in a corner of their homes.) 
In the spirit of the day, Johanna is wearing her special swimsuit:  a pair of waders.
Even Speckles got into the act.
She is dressed up as a Shore Bird.  Seagull?  Swan?  Hard to Tell.

A student in Doug's class was a little outraged:  "How did you get in? That's not fair!"
Everyone wants to go back to School.
