Hopes and Fears
Sharing your hopes and fears builds community.
On the first day of school we discussed our hopes for grade one. I also asked about any fears or worries they might have. It looks like I had a confident group, not one had any worries about what might happen in grade one.
The students were asked to complete this phrase In grade one I hope . . .
