This has been a week for reflection and nostalgia. The children shared memories of their beginning days of first grade and the fears and questions that they had. Following these conversations, each child was asked to write a letter of advice for incoming first grade students. The seasoned first grade students gave newcomers advice about lockers, homework, teachers, writing & reading, math, and recess. The letters will be hanging in the hallway to greet the new first graders in September.
