Welcome back to DGS after the Thanksgiving holiday. Hope everyone had wonderful week with family and friends. I'm sure everyone will have lots to share as we return to our work cycles, lessons and special times together.
We have our peace circle each day with activities, discussions, meditations and acknowledgements which build our class community of love and appreciation for each other, nature and the world. On Fridays, we have a gratitude circle and journaling time. An extension of this was preparing a centerpiece mat and Thankful Placecards for friends and members our families This is an activity you can do at anytime during the holidays.
There were many sweet gratitudes shared and included:
I am grateful for...
My Family, My Friends, My Soft Pillow, DGS, Books, Love, Hot Chocolate, The Sun and the ever changing Moon, Rain, Puppies and Kittens, Cute Babies, Music, Recess, Peace, Art, Sharp Pencils, Spring, Snow, Constellations, Friday Cooking and Eating, Animals in our Classroom who need us to care for them, Bird Songs... the list goes on.
We return after the holiday to some of the busiest months of the year. There are celebrations and events at school as well as the town of Davidson. We're also beginning our preparation for the Science Fair on February 18, with group/class projects and individual projects for the Art Auction on February 14. More information will be sent regarding these events and projects.
See everyone tomorrow as we continue our work each day and exciting projects to come.
Thank you all for your continued support.
