The week started out warm but by Friday, cooler temperatures arrived and it definitely felt like fall. The leaves are starting to change and jacket weather has arrived. Even though fall might be here, we are still getting outside and enjoying some time in the sunshine. As always, the children love playing on the playground and particularly enjoy when the bubble machine is going!
On Tuesday, Ms. Niza was back for yoga class.
Since the weather has gotten cooler, we have started to spend more time in the gym and the children do not seem to mind one bit. They love building with the blocks, playing with each other, and jumping on their teachers!
On Monday and Thursday, Ms. Olga was here for Spanish and the new students are getting more accustomed to the schedule and did an excellent job sitting politely and participating.
There was hard work being done in the classroom this week too. Our new students have been learning how to use classroom materials correctly and their excitement as they accomplish things is evident. As always, beautiful art is created each day.
Lastly, after all this hard work in the classroom, rest time is welcome respite for many students. Although, sometimes when we see them sleeping we have to wonder if they are ever going to wake.
It was a good week at LHMS and the new students are slowly getting used to being in the classroom. The other teachers and I are so happy to see all the children happy and smiling in the classroom!
