Hi, friends! Welcome back to our blog!😊
October came and went, and just like that, we are in November! We are so excited to have you back to check in on what we’ve been up to as a classroom.
Ready? Here we go!☀️
This season, we’ve been working hard, focusing a lot on our learning activities during small groups. Friends have been really applying themselves each week as we enter new stories and interactive activities that create space for critical thinking, as well as practice in our development of fine motor skills.
We are EXTREMELY proud of the progress that we are making as a classroom, and of the willingness in our friends to participate as well as their eagerness to learn.📚😊☀️
Friends have been practicing their pre-writing skills by tracing over work sheets and working through guided activity sheets that correlate with our Kindergarten curriculum each week. They’ve also been learning about math through measuring different items like pumpkins and practicing counting when making patterns. The best part of our approach is that we incorporate games and art into each activity, and we’ve noticed a natural willingness to focus when those are a part of the work. We are so happy and excited to keep growing and learning together! It’s a beautiful thing.❤️📖📊🖍1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣
During our big field activities, we’ve been practicing our hand-eye coordination by learning to aim well and throw a ball at our friends to catch. We’ve had so much fun!
We’ve had a BLAST!!!☺️⚾️
Before we go, we felt there was one last thing worth highlighting. Lately, our Room 2 friends have really been showing their teachers and each other God’s love in such beautiful and tangible ways. This week, Miss Kira witnessed a beautiful moment between students, when one student went over to pray for another student’s headache. How amazing and powerful is that?! Our friends are understanding that more than anything else, we as a Room 2 family are called to love, pray, share, and simply be like Jesus. We hope that each day we are here, the atmosphere of our room would emanate God’s love, laughter, and compassion. We are all one beautiful family: His.❤️
So, until next time, we leave you with this thought. We hope and pray that wherever you are that God would give you the boldness and courage to love each day, just like He gives Room 2.
Blessings, and we’ll check back in with you soon.❤️❤️❤️
p.s. As always, we hope you enjoy these candids as much as we enjoyed taking them!🙃
