Finding Our Rhythm Together

We are busy with the work of learning!  We are getting a real rhythm to our mornings, starting with a little social time and play, followed by 'line' time.  (You might call it circle time. . .  but we make a line - not a circle, so we call it line time!) While at line we greet each other with a little song, share or tell time, and practice our letters and sounds together.  We read our morning message and say the poem together.  I will tell you more about each of these components as we get further into the year.  At the end of line time, I go over any new work that I am introducing or review any activites that I want to draw the children's attention to.  At the conclusion of line, the snack person gets snack underway and we get to work!  We have established a nice morning work period, with most children being able to sustain their work and learning without direction.  Below are some of the activities that the children have been working on during this time.
