Wow! What a fantastic first day we had together! Our new 4/5 group really showed off their listening and problem solving skills while working and playing alongside one another. We are so excited to have this school year underway...hooray!
Check out that line to go outside!
We read "Have You Filled a Bucket Today" by Carol McCloud during morning meeting. The foundation of our program and classroom is based on building a sense of community and fostering respect for all things and people. By introducing children to this book and the idea of these "invisible buckets" we all carry around, it really sets the stage for where we want to be as a classroom community.
Wes, Kallen and Quinn work together to complete an alphabet puzzle. Using the dry erase strip to write down the alphabet was just what they needed to get started!
Great teamwork, boys!
Eloise notices a "tunnel" in her foam dough. Peek-a-Boo...I see you!
Jack looks at a book on tape while waiting for his turn with the foam dough.
Playing animal "family" in the sand table sure is fun!
Charlotte says, "I'm a really great builder!" as she sits down to use the Magna Clix. She wasn't kidding either!
Nolan and his dad sign in at the writing table first thing in the morning. Everyone did a fantastic job writing their names...very impressive!
