Self Portraits

















Our first round of self portraits are done!  What a great way to kick off our "All About Me" unit.  During this time we will celebrate everything that makes us similar and different from one another.  We are all unique and THAT is something to celebrate!



Today we read Be Who You Are by Todd Parr...one of our faves :)



Friends discover a caterpillar on the playground today during morning recess.  We love watching  it slink along the ground as we contemplate what it eats, where it sleeps and if it has a caterpillar Mom and Dad looking for him.  So caring and gentle our Discovery friends are!

Daily Reflections Begin!










Each day after rest time, we will offer a prompt or ask a riveting question for kiddos to answer.  They will often refer to the curriculum we're working on ("Draw a picture of your family"), things that we've seen or discussed throughout the day ("Today we saw a caterpillar on the playground.  If you were a caterpillar, which kind would you be?") or fun "hopes and dreams" questions such as "If you were a King or Queen, what would your castle look like?"  This is a great transition activity and allows children to use prompts to process and engage in ways that they may not otherwise think.  Keep an eye out for these awesome daily reflections near our Parent Board!
