But now I get to participate with three and four year old children as they are beginning to learn to read. Each week, they have new sight words such as "the", "as", "see", etc.
I'm looking forward to this new week. We are going to have a Snow Day. In Scottsdale, this is challenging given our recent 70 degree temperatures. But there's nothing like manufactured snow to play in! At the end of the week, we have Pajama Day. I had to check my closet to find some PJ's that would be appropriate as the teachers get to wear them to school too. :)
Have I mentioned how much I love working at Rancho Solano?
#332 Eyes light up as the children learn more new words
#333 Observing the children read to one another
#334 Realizing how often the children imitate what Heidi and I say each day
#335 The excitement as the children applaud when good manners are being used
#336 Learning new motor skills such as jumping rope
#337 Watching the children learn early that exercise is important for heart health
#338 The smile on Olivia's face after a band-aid is applied
