First day of Pre-K!
We were VERY excited last week to have our pre-kindergarten orientation program (pre-k for short) start up! When you only have two students, who are brothers, having another kid in the classroom is a BIG deal. Our school enrollment increased by one-third!
The boys made "Happy First Day" drawings to welcome Margaret.
I personally liked the dog howling a welcome!
Just like the boys, Margaret gets her own "office" right next to mine... hopefully she is a little tidier then her teacher!
On her first day we introduced her to the calendar, which I think was a hit.
The letter of the day as "D" so we labeled things in the room that started with a D... our favorite thing at school that starts with D is Dalton!
Then it was time for some explorations with the pattern blocks. Maya supervised.
We made a lot of great designs and patterns.
Did I mention how much I love having a girl at school!? We got to make flowers!
Craft project time!
On day two of Pre-K Quinn was the teacher leading the calendar activities for the day.
Maya loves pre-k because it means people are on the floor a lot. I think it is pretty stinking sweet to watch Maya and Margaret together.
The letter of the day was "B". You can hardly tell which letter I wrote and which one Margaret wrote!
And another craft project... painting her office sign!
I think Margaret is going to be a fabulous addition to the Monhegan School! WELCOME MARGARET!
