Morning Meeting and End of the day Reflection Time

Ask your child what their favorite part of morning meeting is! Mine is when they work together in collaborative groups to solve a problem. Today's problem was: How many ways can you represent the whole number. We got to use our new cuisenaire rods!! I love how they help us visualize our numbers. :)














During our afternoon reflection time, we get to share something that happened throughout the day and how we can make it better for next time. That growth mindset helps us set goals, so that we are always learning and growing! :) I love spending each and everyday with your kiddos! You would be amazed at how much you can learn by listening to them share their ideas and reflections!
We had a special reflection time yesterday to reflect on fun times that we had playing and learning with Nikilan. We will miss him dearly and wish his family all the best!!
