I took time off from HOT Schools for my annual summer visit to a day care in Clinton, CT, and we headed outdoors for some time on real grass.  The little kids were first (pre K) and we danced and sang, and I brought out some scarves for some musical play.  A nice addition to interaction with the wee ones.  The school age kids were next, a smaller group, but actually pretty hip.  Some familiar faces from last year.  A good session, and back to HOT Schools for the afternoon and evening sessions.  HOT Schools tomorrow morning and Atwater Library in the evening.
