Today was the first day back from Spring Break. The children were really excited to see one another this morning. They welcomed one another with hugs and kisses.
Not only did the children welcome our classroom's new Beta fish, but they welcomed a new teacher as well. Abigail Frankfurt is an Early Childhood Teacher who has happily joined Debbie beginning this week. Here she is reading The Duckling Gets a Cookie, by Mo Willems, during circle time. The children were enthused to meet TWO!!! new friends.
After a morning full of golf, we returned to the classroom for snack. The children talked about what they did over their vacation and Debbie lead a circle time discussion about feelings. Everyone said they were happy and the thing that made them feel happy was knowing that their Mommy and Daddy would pick them up!
Tomorrow we plan on having a fish-naming-ceremony. Perhaps we will draw a name from a hat!
