Today, Sweetie forwarded to me an email from Mr Bunches' 4K teacher.
I'm going to print the whole text, changing only Mr Bunches' name:
Just wanted to let you know that watching Mr Bunches today was definitely the highlight of my week!!!
His first choice today was connectors. He played there for a few minutes but mostly watched four others who were building with lincoln logs. He picked up his toys that he was playing with and put them back :) and walked over to the small group that were building and asked,
"Can I play too!?"
Their response was, "Sure but be careful."
Mr Bunches then says, "It will not break, I like your house."
He continued to have a very appropriate dialogue with all of the other children building the same house, asking to take a turn, calling the other children by their name when talking to them, noticing that the others didn't have pieces to build with, talking about who could live in the house.
I watched all of this interaction and it just brought happy tears to my eyes!!!! I so wish I had a video camera for all of this!!!!
It is truly amazing how far he has come this year and he is such a wonderful part of our classroom! Have a great weekend! --
Earlier today, I had said to someone "it's the little victories that count," but sometimes the little victories are really big huge victories if you look at them the right way.
