Green School daily blog

School's started! Day 2....

While I'd love to write more, I'm quite exhausted after my first two days of teaching kindergarten! We're lucky to have such an awesome group of kids- but man are they tiring! Has been a blast though, really, pretending to make scrambled eggs and pancakes in the toy kitchen and cuddling up on the big cushions to read stories. I wish I was five years old again! Here's an excerpt from the blog that I'm responsible for writing about daily activities in our classroom. And take a look at the pic down below- taken on day one when the parents were invited to join us for that morning.

Welcome to the kindie!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the pre-K and K blog! Our very first couple days at Green School have been very special. While some of the children arrived more timid than others, everyone left school with beaming smiles and an eagerness to return the following day!

The children are learning the rhythm of the day through song, movement, indoor and outdoor play, yoga, shadow puppetry, and arts expression. Today, Ibu Ami visited our classroom and engaged the students in the making of Balinese offerings. Many of the students felt very proud to have their very own “paku pipit” to take home to their families! The children also helped Ibu Ingrid design the shape for the outdoor garden. The majority of the children wanted the seeds to be planted in the shape of an orange- Stay tuned to find out when the seeds sprout!

There are many changes underway here at Green School and we hope that each day will bring new ideas, inspiration, and creativity into our classroom. The students have already demonstrated incredibly eclectic and diverse personalities- we couldn’t be more delighted that they’ve joined us here at Green School!
