Bucket List - The second activity for the day was to gear the children into thinking about the year in the long term. We all compiled a list, similar to a “bucket list” but for the year. We will be using this list to reward the children as the year progresses. We neatly wrote out the final list on a large piece of paper and this will be displayed in the schoolroom so that we can track and mark off what we do and add to it if we come up with more.
We have a bunch of "School" related songs to listen to, including School House Rock songs
The kids REALLY enjoyed their Back to School Party and stated that they wish every school day was like this, lol.
|Wendy wrote notes to the kids and placed each one in their own brown bag lunch.|
