Day 1!!

Well…We all survived the first day!  It was so exciting to watch the children explore in their new classroom environment.  Everyone seemed to be very curious about some new materials and enjoyed playing in a variety of centers.  We observed children helping each other, writing their names, writing their friends’ names, drawing self portraits, building complex structures, pretending, reading books, comparing the weight of a rock versus a shell, sharing materials and working together to solve problems.  So impressive!  During a group meeting about making healthy choices, a question came up about pickles.  What is a pickle?  One little girl commented that carrots must be pickles because she cuts them up and puts them in jars like pickles…more to come on this later after further investigation!  We will continue working on classroom expectations and routines as well as building a community with both the children and their families.  We look forward to meeting the new Year 1’s for the remainder of the week!  Enjoy some snapshots of some wonderful things the children were exploring and creating today 🙂
