It's hard to believe, but we are midway through our academic year! I was looking over the pictures that I've taken of the children and have seen them change before my eyes! Many of them have lost some of the 'roundness' in their features and have grown taller and more agile. The inner changes are apparent as well. The children have developed new friendships and deepened existing ones. They know the daily routine and meet new challenges with confidence. The children are mastering many new skills including: counting with one to one correspondence; color, shape, number and letter recognition; developing fine motor and large motor skills and using language to solve problems. They are growing up!
