Off To A Stellar Start!

What a fun start to the year!

These classes are ready to get right down to the business of making friends, exploring, and learning together.

One of the first things we do is learn the schedule and routines of our classroom. CHECK. It didn't take long for these preschoolers, many of them Sunshine preschool veterans, to learn and follow the routine.

We will always be working on manners in my classroom. A gracious child is a beautiful thing and noticed in our society. When a preschooler is making a request I will often say, "What is that magic word that makes me want to help you?"

My main focus is please and thank you and using nice words to speak to each other. A respectful child generally thinks more highly of himself and others. It is worth the extra effort to model manners when speaking to preschoolers as well as helping them remember to use manners when speaking to others.

Just a reminder: Monday's are sharing day or Show and Tell. Please only bring one item.

Enjoy the pictures of our busy days!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's learning experiences and life.
