Here is their conversation, held as they were drawing images for the signs.
Anna "Could we make some friendly signs or some 'yes' signs?"
Ju. "Yeah, like you can bring a dog. Or, please have a nice dog and not a mean dog. Cause a mean dog might get the fragile stuff like me and Duke's special boat. I know you need signs, cause Duke started putting signs so the cleaners wouldn't throw away the big (cardboard) pirate boat.
Ja. "I want to say 'please draw'"
M. "How about 'play the guitar'?"
L. I wanna say please have beds, so I can sleep in the grass."
Ju. Sleepover with Sabot?"
L."Please be comfy on the grass'
L. I know! "Please have good manners"
M. Please slow down"
Ja. "I want to say 'play the guitar' on one."
M. "I said 'hug'. Anna "Can you write the letters for hug? H-U-G"
M. H..........U..........I can't do a G.
Ju. "I can! Let me show you how"
Next, we will show the sign ideas at circle to see if anybody else in the class has suggestions or sign ideas of their own. Eventually, I would like to hang the signs around the school, and then around the city. Can you imagine walking through Richmond and seeing a child-made sign that says 'Please draw here'?
