a is for apple

“you mean we can move the paint with our hands?”20130915-213410.jpgthe first full week of preschool is complete. all the children have graced the room. i’ve been amazed at the calm and ease of our time together.

we will follow the alphabet through and last week we started with a. while there are detailed lesson plans in place, when the children enter the room, the lesson plans become the backdrop.

the focus is on feelings and choices.
