Connecting With Children


Please enjoy this wonderful post from the excellent teacher, Jennie!

A Teacher's Reflections

Week One:

Tears.  Fears.  Smiles.  Worries.

Then laughing crept in, and hugging.  Children learned the routine and bonded with teachers.  They sang the ‘Days of the Week’ song on their own.  Parent goodbyes became quick.

In my ‘gazillion’ years of teaching, it always amazes me how quickly things shift in just a few days.  Children are resilient.

Here is the newsletter I sent to families at the end of Week One:

We had a wonderful first week of school!  In just a few short days, your children have connected with teachers and with each other.  It feels good.  It feels like we’re a family.  Children are belly-laughing, sharing stories, making friends, and finding comfort in the routine of the day.  There are so many little moments that bring us together- singing the Days of the Week song, listening to a Jennie Story at lunch, snuggling with Heidi and a book.
