Halloween is a fun time for young children with lots of art, crafts, dressing up, imagination, and more. To get in the spirit of this festive event, our teachers read Halloween stories, taught the children many Halloween songs, and created art with pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons, and spiders. The classrooms were decorated with all the children’s Halloween creations.
Intentional Morning Greetings
As the children returned to school, our emphasis was on being supportive and developing a positive relationship with each child. The children had been at home for many months and then returned to a school that looked very different. To help them make this transition, the children returned to the class that they had left in March before being introduced to their new class with new teachers.
The first weeks of school have gone extremely well. Only a few children had tears for just a couple of days then eagerly walked with their teacher to their class as they waved good-bye to their parents. Many of the parents were surprised at the ease of the transition, though some had tears in their eyes as they waved goodbye.
