Its been a busy first month in Azul. Most of the children are now settled in the new classroom. It is amazing to see how their eyes lit up with joy instead of tears on arrival. We are so grateful to have such cheerful and enthusiastic bunch of children who come all charged up and eager to learn.
Past few weeks we have spent time to understand each other and the new environment. This included getting to know teachers, classmates, classroom routines, safety and lots of lessons on grace and courtesy.
Besides learning, there was lot of excitement to go outside and play with their classmates, feed the goats, and chase rabbits, ducks and roosters. It was a perfect time for them to enjoy fall harvest in our school garden. Many of them enjoyed the taste of freshly picked tomatoes, kale, and chives. Our little pumpkin patch is also coming along very well and soon children will see how big pumpkins grow in just few weeks.
We are all excited to celebrate our theme on "community helpers" in the month of October. We hope to inspire children to appreciate the efforts community helpers put in to make our lives better and motivate them to be one.
