Settling in...

There comes a time in the early part of the school year when one feels a distinct "settling in" of the classroom - I think we have made it to that point!  The children are comfortable with our classroom rhythms can anticipate general routines.  And it is wonderful!  Some photos from this week:

Folding practice:  "Oooh, look!  It's a triangle!"

Sorting blocks by color.

Story writing using the Story Paper lesson.

Making an autumn themed art project.

Numbers 1-9 with the Short Bead Hanger.

Color Mixing

Drawing with dry erase markers at the easel.  Afterwards,  the child washes the easel.

Matching Numeral Cards to corresponding Number Rods.
