During the week-long break, teachers at Green Apple have been busy with developing new skills, sharing best practices, and getting geared up for a new school year! We are excited for our younger Saplings to become our oldest Saplings, and our newest leaders in our community. We are also thrilled to be welcoming so many new friends into our community over the next few weeks.
This coming month, we will be focusing much of our time on building our classroom community, ensuring everyone knows our expectations of growing into independent, caring learners in a nurturing and respectful community. We will be finding out one another’s strengths and discovering where some friends can help others in various areas of need.
We will be discovering our family groups; the younger Saplings with Miss Willow and the older Saplings with Miss Lauren. We will be learning many new routines to help instill a sense of belonging, independence, predictability, and more.
Below are some pictures of Saplings getting acquainted with their new spaces, meeting new friends, growing in independence, and working on various projects!
