Our Days

Our days seem to go by so fast!  During the mornings we have a multitude of activity going on in every direction. 2, 3, 4 and 5 year olds carrying on their chosen work, socializing, learning new lessons, the list goes on and on.

I often have my phone close by so I am able to document our time together. I love this because it gives parents a “view” into a classroom that they normally are not a part of.

I’ve decided to start a series of blog posts about our days together. What the children are doing and how we spend our time together.

Today, like every day, there was a flurry of work and discoveries going on. I love when children decide to attempt something new and are beaming when done.  They will often show their friends or me, not for approval, but just to “share the love”.

These two friends had a new lesson with metal insets (an amazingly fun exercise in handwriting by tracing geometric shapes and then coloring). When they were done we talked about how you could write your name on your work if you chose. One child said “but I’m not sure all the letters in my name”. So…. We decided to make name tags to look at.  The other child noticed that she “usually writes a big E at the end of my name because I can’t do the other one.”  The two children decided to clean up metal inset and take out chalk boards to practice

This is their outcome- both very proud of their accomplishments
