I can think of no better way to start the week than the way we did last week, meeting with you, parents. Thank you so much for taking the time to sit with us to talk about our favorite subject – your children. The children’s portfolios, both online and in actual folders were bulging with information that we celebrated. Leveled books and writing portfolios gave us a glimpse into book handling skills and writing workshop. Manipulatives, scattered in bins and on the table, moved about in explanation, gave us examples of math work to build upon. And, of course in one photo, you see our never-ending fruit bowl with small chunks of dark chocolate – those just seemed to make everything a little bit sweeter.
