Our 1st day together

We spent the day getting to know each other. I was able to take a few photos while we were together.

Here are a few snippet from the day:
-After listening to a story and learning each others names, we explored the room and practiced writing numbers.
-In the morning we had a snack of bananas at the picnic tables and we had grapes for afternoon snack, inside.
-Before lunch we read books and some children got a chance to listen to a story with the headsets. And then we drew pictures of ourselves and some children added their families to the drawing.
-At 12:30 we came in for a Quiet Time. Everyone looked tired after a busy morning. I started reading a novel about a boy who lived during the Renaissance period. He wants to be an artist instead of a tailor like the rest of his family. The novel is titled The Apprentice.
-The remainder of Quiet Time was spent finishing drawings, painted at the easel, and playing with play-dough.
-Below is a photo of the children with Madame (Imogen) at the beginning of French class.
-Then there was the exciting first bus ride to the gym.

I hope your child is as excited about tomorrow as I am.
