Thank you for coming to the Back to School Night. I was grateful to see so many parents in our classroom and our close partnership will make the children even more successful.
It takes about 4-6 weeks at the beginning of the school year for all the children to settle in and reach a sense of belonging. I witnessed the first evidence of this process on September 23rd. At these moments, there is a hum, a sense of serenity and such deep contentment among the group.
For the month of October, I encourage you to go on nature walks and collect seeds, nuts, or leaves you find along the way. Many trees, like oaks, redwoods and eucalyptus drop their amazing looking products. We will display and grow our collection here at school all through the month and build sounding and counting lessons around the children's discoveries. You will be astounded once you see those pictures in the next newsletter!
No tricks here,
~ Miss Barbara
