First Week of School

Dear Parents,

It’s been a GREAT first week of school! Everyone seems happy to be here and settled already, which makes me very happy too.

These first two weeks, we will be focusing on “settling in”. This involves learning routines, schedules, and getting to know one another, as well as all their teachers, through conversations, learning engagements, and during free-play. We are also discussing and developing our classroom Essential Agreements. These are positive actions that all the children decide and agree upon that help make our classroom fun and safe for everyone. Establishing routines, learning schedules, and developing Essential Agreements are, first and foremost, the most important “activities” we can do in the first few weeks of school. These first steps ensure that the children are able to manage transitions, feel comfortable and safe in their daily environment, and begin to develop positive relationships with their teachers and classmates.

I just wanted to share with you some photos of our first week of learning here in Prep 4.2.

Enjoy!
