This week we had a lot to celebrate, starting with Margaret’s birthday! Out birthday committee completed their first ever birthday interview at a distance. Children interviewed Margaret over Zoom to help inspire her gift. The children passed the birthday gift from house to house, adding bits along the way until it was decked out in sparkles and burst at the seams with love. Margaret and her family joined us on a class zoom call where Margaret read the class a story! This was the first time a child read to the class for their birthday and wow! Margaret you have so many gifts, and now you can add story telling to the list. Thank you so much for celebrating your special day with us! We love you!
We also wanted to thank you and your children for reaching out with such thoughtful flowers and messages for Teacher Appreciation Week! We are honored to form these close relationships with your children over their years at St John’s and grateful technology and the postal service can keep us connected through these times. We would also like to thank all of you for the teachers you have become over the course of our distance learning! We couldn’t do any of this without your support. Thank you for generosity, love and all the work you do in collaboration with us!
The children have been engrossed in storytelling and created many endearing puppets this week with tons of personality. We have loved seeing the children bring their puppets to life with names, adventures and different voices. In the coming weeks we will explore the structure of storytelling and discover what stories the children are interested in telling.
