volunteer comes up and asks the other observer if the kids are interrupting him which he says a little and she tries to get Jenny away from him which doesn’t seem to work. Time 3:15 PMSetting: The volunteer grabs Jenny’s arm gently and asks her to give him some space. Shesnatches her arm back but complies and walks away. She starts playing with toys, standing on and picking up blocks. After a couple of minutes, she gets up and walks over to the group that is surrounded by a volunteer. Jenny falls over and gets right back up. Jenny sees a toy that she likes, which is in her friend’s hand, and tries to grab it which the volunteer stops and gives her another toy. Now they are all buzzing their lips like airplanes. The volunteers repeatedly tell
them that that is what spreads germs but that doesn’t seem to phase them, as they continue to do it. She continues to make the airplane noises and laughs when the volunteers tell her that it’s bad.She has finally seemed to stop making the noise and wants to get picked up by a volunteer whichone does pick her up for a few minutes.

Jenny picks up some chalk and then when the buggy starts to move away, Jenny cries because wants to push the cart. When the cart stops, jenny checks the kids inside and makes sure they are all buckled in and alright. When the rest of the group goes off intothe grass, Jenny sits on blue oversized building blocks which disturbs one of the older kids.
