What a wonderful time we had Friday at our VPK Teacher Workshop at Bright Beginnings Early School. A warm welcome to Molly, the new Stepping Stones teacher. Let me tell you I slept well last night after an energetic and fun morning with this group.
Unlike most reading programs, our preschool program is not scripted and curriculum-driven. We respect the intelligence and creativity of preschool teachers. And we wonder how you can follow a script with a VPK classroom. Someday, I may try to time the attention spans of a class of 4-year-olds. But I don’t know if my thumb will work that fast on a stopwatch. So, okay, forget the respect and admire. We are downright in awe.
We packed a lot of material in our half day session with a focus on:
We look forward to our continued teamwork with the VPK and Stepping Stones teachers and also to the orientation for parents where we will “Kick-off” our home/school literacy partnership program.
I feel so blessed. Katelyn, Caroline, and Cameron have all graduated from BB; but I still get to hang out there.
