Conversations with Room Dalet

Deep-thinkers and wonderful conversations!

We have come to the end of our 16th school year and I can’t believe how fast time has gone. There’s a lot more than easel painting and digging in the sand going on around here; you would be surprised at what deep-thinkers these precious preschoolers are. In particular our four and five year olds! Throughout the year they have had many conversations with their teacher, Lauri, and I would like to share some with you.

What are you thankful for?
“I’m thankful for my dolly that can pretend to brush its teeth.”
“I’m thankful for our class.”
“I’m thankful for my family.”

What is something you can do that is kind?
“If someone is sad, then I’ll calm them down.”
“Care for animals and when someone is sad, I could crack them up!”
“Care about my friends, care for other people in the whole wide world.”

What does God look like and where does He live?
“He looks like a boy with some hair on his chin. I think he lives in Belmont.”
“God looks like the world because God is the world. He lives on Earth. He is nature and he is also oxygen, so you can breathe and won’t die.”
“God looks like a giraffe. He has a long neck. He lives behind the universe.”

While we are teaching children each year; we are learning so much more from them. We are all looking forward to starting our 17th year, filled with more deep-thinkers, wonderful conversations, easel painting, and sandbox play.

Have a great summer!
