The tribe has spent many days together finding their place and purpose at Berkshire Country Day School.
We have settled upon the gymnasium as our primary place for gross motor exploration. We spend the majority of our time in the gym playing chase with our friends and teachers. We continue to practice our jumps off the mats with great success, coupled with a few tumbles that are followed by, “Are you okay?” and, “Do you want a hug?”
We have found our purpose at school as well. Our purpose is to play. Our purpose is to explore the world around us through our extensive study of play.
We have also been thoroughly appreciating the many sensory explorations BCD has to offer; including: Orbeez, sand, water, mud, sticks, leaves, play dough and even paint!
While November is passing us by, it seems as though the tribe has belonged to BCD for years. As a whole, they are forming a congealed community of rapidly developing two-year-olds. We have become accustomed to the footsteps upstairs, the busyness of the cubby room, and the daily visits from administration.
As the weather turns colder, we continue to grow closer. Closer to our school, closer to our peers, closer to our teachers, and closer to achieving many independent skills we have been working on since September. We have been working on unzipping coats and lunchboxes, twisting open applesauce and yogurt pouches, and taking off our socks and shoes before nap time. The colder months bring us new challenges of putting on snow-pants, gloves, hats and heavy boots.
We are looking forward to spending the next few weeks outside in the wonderful Berkshires!
