Over the past few weeks, the children have discovered that they are very talented readers and artists! One student read a book out loud to the class during a meeting using our classroom microphone. She told us that she knew how to read because she had heard a teacher read the book and remembered the words. Building images of ourselves as readers is essential to each child's success. We’ll continue to explore this more throughout the year. We also read the book, The Dot, and discovered that we are artists as well! The children have loved exploring their painting skills with watercolors and practicing writing their names by signing their artwork pieces.
