Little Miss Muffet
This week we learned the nursery rhyme "Little Miss Muffet". The students had the opportunity to act out the rhyme during morning routines.
Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider who sat down beside her
And frighten miss muffet away.

"From there to here, from here to there. Funny things are every where."
The Kissind Hand
Every beginning of the year we have some students who are scared of coming to school since they feel out of place. They are separated from their parents into a unknown world with people they've never seen before. It can be scary for anyone!
"The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn is the perfect book to help children out of this scary place and see this amazing place filled with possibilities.
We read the story and then made our own kissing hands!
What is more amazing to see how children start to understand concepts such as counting and building at such an early age. Here you can find Camilo stacking up legos to relate them to the numbers in the cup.
As the week continued, children found different uses for the legos and made houses, buildings, rocket ships but related them to size. Matias decided that he was going to build different size houses while talking about the families that lived inside them. Lara opted on making towers.

"If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."
"Please excuse our mess, our kids are making memories"
"Every child is gifted! They just unwrap their gifts at different stages."
