Teacher Savannah practicing songs with the class
Well families, we have ended another successful school year at Little Jags and every year I feel so blessed to be a part of this special program. There is nothing else like it and I truly believe that all students, big and small, benefit so much from this environment. As we celebrated the graduating seniors in our class the other day, so many of them shared how their experience here has truly helped them grow as people. The class and the children helped them see what was important in life and the impact of putting the children first always. It is not an easy program, it requires a lot of dedication and responsibility and I appreciate my students in so many ways. They were in tears at the thought of not being here anymore and not seeing the children anymore. How remarkable is that!? As we end the year, I want you all to know how much we appreciate you allowing us to care for and work with your children in this unique learning environment. We wish you all the best as your children move on, and for some of you....see you next year!!
Thanks again for a great year!!
I promised that I would get some pictures on here, and then had considerate technical difficulties that would not allow me to upload pictures for some reason! I apologize for that set back and I am hoping that it is all clear now. This is my attempt to see if it works! I loved this project that we did for mother's day. We chose it because we had a pile of donated mdf circles given to us my Mr. Morley across the hall. He is our secret helper who often helps us pull out our more fun projects like the cow milking station. This was so fun and the kids actually did the bulk of it themselves. I was amazed at how detailed and precise they were with placing the beads. They really put a lot of careful effort into it and made a special gift. I hope you enjoyed it! Here is a look at the process....

Wrapping the gift! (They were still wet so hopefully not too many beads were shifted or fell off!)
