Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Illinois Kindergarten Conference. Mrs. Cullinan and Mrs. Duttlinger also attended. We learned so much and had such a great time!! I was able to meet several new presenters including the "teachers pay teachers" millionaire, Deanna Jump. Our class is very excited that I had the opportunity to meet Michael Heggerty, the author of our new phonemic awareness program. I hope to be incorporating many new ideas into our program.
The preschool is visiting our classroom in sections. We had a delightful visit last week and will invite the rest of the class on Tuesday. Everyone seemed very engaged in our centers.
The Lord's Supper
Scripts will soon be coming home for our classroom reenactment of the Lord's Supper. We will be drawing names for the parts soon. Children will bring in bathrobes or something similar to wear. We do not invite anyone to visit because I like to keep it as intimate as possible to resemble the real thing.
Thank you for the Catholic Schools Week Gifts and all of the nice valentines.
