This week I am celebrating joy. The joy floating about our classroom community. We have been together not quite 3 months and this week, something clicked. We are a we, an us, an important, connected community. There have been signs. There have been traces. There have been moments. This week, we got there.
And so I celebrate all of the happy, all of the joy, all of the we.
I found it in all of these place . . .
Three boys and the latest Elephant and Piggie title.
Sisters off to book shop during buddy reading.
Sharing radishes during afternoon play time. Crunch, crunch. Munch, munch.
Science exploring with our Let’s Talk Science volunteers. “I am science!” one child exclaimed.
Sneaking up on Warning: Do not Open this Book! by Adam Lehrhaupt and illustrated by Matthew Forsythe Preparing to read Please, Open this Book! These titles required some very careful sneaking because there are wild creatures in them talking all about being well, wild, and then complaining about being trapped. Reading these was a full out adventure.
Sharing a book review with our guest reader from the BLG law firm who gifts us with books every week.
The thing I know about arriving in the land of we – there is no going back. I am beyond thrilled to be here. And I’m not going anywhere.
Thank you to Ruth Ayres and the #celebratelu community!
Being part of a community that regularly shares gratitude and celebrations truly transforms my weeks.
