What a great start to the school year so far! We are enjoying getting to know the new children and becoming reacquainted with the many returning faces. On our first full day, both classes learned our class motto: WE ARE KIND!
We are studying oceans and boats this month. The children can really relate to these topics thanks to the beautiful Island that we call home. Both classes have also been busy learning the routines at school and learning about each other. The Pre-K class is starting their classroom meetings, treasure boxes (objective-based math centers) and science journals. We are so thrilled to have our new assistants – Teacher Yvonne (preschool) and Teacher Leslie (Pre-K) helping us this year!
We will also be celebrating a special birthday this month.... Souris the mouse! Souris is a BCNS tradition, going back more than 40 years. She comes to school for every birthday celebration. We use Souris' birthday as a way to show the children how we celebrate birthdays at our school.
