Ms. Holcomb & Mrs. Childress
We have been introducing ourselves and getting to know each other since the beginning of school. We love seeing the girls' bonds from the years before as well as seeing new friendships blossom. We took this opportunity to take a look at our names. What is a name? Where did they came from? Are names important? How can you learn someone's name? Is there a correct way to write our names? These are just some of the questions we touched on. Below you will see conversations from our whole group time together, center exploration, and small group explorations.
