Ongoing Efforts

We finally had a whole week without snow days, ice delays, mass sickness, or holidays. It was great to be able to get in the groove. I am often quietly amazed at this point in the year. How can it be that what had started as a class of squeaking recorders can now pop out "Hot Cross Buns" or "Mary Had a Little Lamb" with clear skill? When did they figure out enough Spanish to understand as Theresa does her whole morning circle in that language? How can it be that the child sitting next to me is reading a book with fluency and expression that would have been completely beyond her in September? Learning is sometimes dramatic and flashy, but more often it comes from ongoing effort, a steady rhythm of work that gets these children to amazing places.
