We had a great first day of school! We started the day with Morning Meeting where the children greeted each other with a friendly handshake. Everyone seemed very comfortable and joined right in.
We began our Fundations literacy program by introducing the names of the guidelines we will be using when we learn to form letters. Be sure to ask about the skyline, the plane line, the grass line and the worm line.
The children started a book about colors, a nursery rhyme book and book about ourselves. We also made our kissing hands and visors that went home today. The children had some time to explore some of our math manipulatives. Mrs. Parnell and Mrs. Hoyt introduced some of the choice areas in the classroom. The students are eager to visit the blocks, sand, listening station and games areas!
One of the highlights of the day included our first trip to the playground for recess! It was great to see classmates playing together, taking turns and giving each other a push on the swings!
Tomorrow we will be introduced to the calendar routine and some fun classroom songs! We will also explore the color orange and will continue with our “Getting to know…” books. We will be sharing about our likes and dislikes, our families and aspirations.
Thank you to everyone for sharing your beautiful children! We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
