We had a successful first week of school in the Butterfly Room. The children have been learning the rules and routines of their new classroom as they make new friends and become reacquainted with old friends. Some of the fun activities we did were reading lots of books about friends, playing an International Friends matching game, practicing patterning and matching with the Busy Bugs, golf ball painting and writing the first of our monthly journal pages. (These are hanging in the hallway.) We were blessed with perfect weather and got to spend a lot of time outside exploring all of the play yards. Although the bike trail isn’t quite ready for riders yet (we’re waiting for a storage shed for the bikes) it was great for drawing on with chalk. Can't wait for week two!
