Just Let Me Play
This September's back-to-school came with some very exciting news! My husband and I are expecting our first child in March 2018 and we could not be more thrilled! I was eager to share the news with the school community and the kinders. On the first day of school I shared my ultrasound photograph with the kindergartens! It was then, during the first week of school, the wonders and questions began from the children...
"Why is the baby swimming?"
"Is the baby dancing?"
'When will the baby visit us?"
"Why is there water inside?"
" How big is the baby?"
"I have a little brother on the outside"
"Will you bring the crib to school?"
" We will need a bathtub at school"
All of a sudden, the first documentation panel of the year began! Our first inquiry and year long learning would be about our baby, whom we refer to as Baby Sprinkle. The children created signage, shared their wonders, and started their own collection of baby photos for Baby Sprinkle. Within a day or two, parents were approaching me and asking about the news... is it true Ms. D? Who is Baby Sprinkle?
You are invited to follow the kindergartens and myself as we explore the most fabulous inquiry of Baby Sprinkle!
Are You My Mother?
Are You my Mother is a very sentimental book for me. It certainly is a childhood favourite of mine! My mother would always read it to me as a child. I must have read this book thousands of times as a child and thousands of times as a teacher. My mother over the years has always made it a tradition to gift me a children's book with a special note from her and my father. In this book, my mother surprised me with the 50th Anniversary Edition of the book Are You My Mother and wrote about the future joys this book would bring to my students and future child- our Baby Sprinkle. Now, my husband and I have continued this tradition, and when we read to baby every night, we write a special note in baby's book of the day from Mommy, Daddy, and Maggie. I already am so in love with baby and baby's collection of literature.
