Getting Ready For Graduation
The last weeks of our school year we have been very busy preparing for our graduation ceremony. Our graduates are the students we call "seniors". These are the children in our class that will be leaving our school to attend Kindergarten in the fall. It's a big milestone and we spend time preparing the whole class for this big change. We also talk about how our younger friends will be our new seniors and the responsibilities that come with being a senior in our classroom. Our younger friends can't wait to be seniors in our classroom. Every year I get so much pleasure watching how this process works. A mixed age classroom holds many benefits for our students and this is a big one.
While all this talking is happening, we are also doing things to physically get ready for the main event. There are caps, crowns, invitations, and decorations to make. Busy hands painting, gluing, and writing.
