I celebrate each Saturday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. There are many others who celebrate, too. Come join us! Tweet at #CelebrateLu
This week was filled with lots and lots of reading, and a celebration at the end yesterday when I went to Ingrid's play at our Denver Center for Performing Arts after two weeks of drama camp. This is her third year, and it is impressive what the teachers and students do in creating a wonderful ending, on a big stage, for all families who come to see. They group them by grade so there are performances from kindergarten all the way to 5th grade. Imi did one week last week and they too had a small performance but I missed it because of other plans. Both had a great time. The organization of that many children is admirable, and the ending always lovely.
All the students gather "down front" in the theater, each with the teachers, ready for the performance, watching and waiting for their turn. I was impressed and then was reminded of all the adults in children's lives that I appreciate, that I have celebrated in my own children's lives, and celebrate now for my grandchildren. It does indeed take a village!
I've participated in #CyberPD this year with Cathy Mere, Michelle Nero and Laura Komos, a joyful learning experience. As I read so many posts of reflection, I was in awe of all each one told of what they've been doing, what they've planned to do next year. I celebrate teachers! Here are a few picture reminders of all the adults I appreciate in children's lives.
