I have loved looking up at these butterflies all year:
They are pretty, but also help us remember that we are about possibilities in Rm. 202; we don’t know to do some things now–YET–but we will some day if we work hard and keep going.
I’ve been thinking about how/when we’d return to these goals (written during our first days of 2nd grade together), and Valentine’s Day seemed like as good a time as any. Our focus was showing how we care about each other, and it’s definitely because of how we love and care for each other and work together that our yet has become now. So we took some time to review them, and then make new goals to hang up and work on.
Kiddos took their butterflies and reviewed the goal they had written. If they knew it was something they knew how to do now, they wrote “NOW I DO!”, along with the date, on their butterfly. It was pretty exciting to see that almost all of us were able to celebrate achieving our goals, and we assured the others that their yet would come. 🙂 Check out how proud these kiddos are of their progress!
(There was one more, but he didn’t want me to post his picture. :))
After we took down our butterflies and declared our progress on them, we need something new to fill our wall. It was looking a little lonely:
So we got to work. I don’t have the finished product to show you, because we’re still working, but here’s a sneak peek at what will go up here:
It will be beautiful for so many reasons! I’ll share soon. Come back, will you? 🙂
