End of the year fun!


As the year winds down we have spent some time finishing up projects, as well as enjoying our last days together.  The children and I have been reflecting on our year and celebrating our many accomplishments.  What an amazing group of young learners they are.  They have come together as a community and really look out for one another and respect each other.  Of course there have been bumps along the way, but I wouldn’t expect anything different.  They are 6 and 7 year olds discovering the world around them, learning how to navigate friendships, and just beginning to understand how to work together with others.

Buddy Readers


This morning, just like every Friday morning, the children begin their day with our friends from the neighboring 3/4 classroom. It’s one of my favorite times of the week. Several of the older children are former students of mine. I love to see them in their new role as mentors and role models for the youngers. The children were assigned buddies that they stay partnered with for the entire year. When the children get together on Friday mornings they spend time reading together and visiting. It’s a great way to start our Friday!
