Morning meetings focus on each student and how they feel each day. Checking on our friends and understanding how we feel is one of the most important components to making each day a good day. “Good morning friend!” “What color are you today?” Would you rather live on the beach or in the mountains?”
Our Pre-K room smelled so good this week! Our friends have been busy making applesauce by counting, measuring, peeling, and tasting all the ingredients that go into making this delicious snack!
