We had a great first week of preschool with friends old and new. We are getting to know each other through play, art and talking. For a few, it is the first, longest time being away from the known comforts of home and family. For others, the art, music and play choices are familiar and evolving with a mastery of skills and new playmates. For all of us, our work is play and creating a sense of belonging for each child in the room.
A few books we read about feelings, being yourself and living in community with each other:
We will continue to care for our caterpillars and chrysalises, being careful not to disturb the hanging chrysalis while we provide fresh milkweed for our hungry, hungry caterpillars!
