p (+ h) is for photo

we’ve replaced name tags with photos in a few places in the classroom.


throughout the year we make changes to this routine, but for now children pick up their photo and put it in the cup at circle time (kind of tricky when i also have my coffee cup there).  at circle time i match the photo to the name on the picture board.




sweet faces, indeed.

n is for neighbor

we have a former preschooler living across the street from our school.  he knows how to read and offered to come each week to share a story.



thank you, henry, for being a teacher friend to us!


(and for bringing such yummy picnic snacks)

b is for ball rolling

when your teacher plans an activity to roll balls down the paint box but the paint is too think and the balls too light, make sure you have another teacher strong enough to pick the box up.
