Rose: I’ve established a routine in my classroom and most of my students, even the young ones are able to follow along.
Thorn: one isn’t
Rose: We had some great weather for the first week and all my students got introduced to the playground and the track.
Thorn: I have two students who have to be carried in from PE everyday because they are having trouble transitioning.
Rose: I’ve started conferring with students in their journals and I’m putting more work into the teacher side. “I am in the work”
Thorn: My students seem to be less mature every year, stamina is going to be an issue, even in sustaining play.
Rose: I know I’m starting the year off right – nice and slow, lots of play, structure to support transitions, building relationships.
Thorn: It feels crummy when my relationship with just one student -( a child) -( a 3 year old child) – (only on this planet for 36 months) – is in trouble.
