Continuing Progress

The pictures from this week's time in the classroom illustrate the continuing progress of our group.  The children are enjoying our lessons together, building independence, and taking great ownership throughout their environment.  What a joy it is to observe this and be a part of it all!  It brings me much comfort to see these progressions, especially as we approach the date of my departure overseas.  I know our classroom will continue on the same path of learning and growth.
