Little Elephant has started the new school year, so adorable stories of learning, friendship, and inside jokes are trickling their way home. I love how interactive her classroom is and how responsive the school is in communicating what goes on with parents.
As an early activity, they read Horton Hears a Who and then discussed everything about hearing. How do you hear? What do ears do? Do all animals have ears? What words make you happy when you hear them?
They decorated a large elephant and listed words that make them happy. Independently, Little Elephant and her best friend, Little S, answered with each other’s names as the word that makes them each the happiest! How cute is that?
