All about M

On a recent cold morning the kindergarten children were learning all about the letter M. It's easy for adults to forget how much there is to learn at that age.

The simple lesson included capital M's and small m's, manipulating pieces of pasta into M shapes, painting the M's creatively and then cleaning up one's own work space. Along the way there was time to talk about those children whose names begin with M--Manuel, Marbella, Mireya and Miranda, among others. 

One quick learner finished his M and then wanted to paint his name, too. Painting, after all, is different than just writing--really much more fun.

This week all these children were pre-enrolled by their parents in the local primary school, ready to begin first grade next year.
