DRAGONFLY COVE

Sharing the unique experiences, ideas and inspirations enriching our lives and the children in our care.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about getting out there and dancing in the rain♥

Dragonfly Cove is dedicated to all the kiddos in our lives:D You will see various pictures of our kiddos learning through play in their "every day" life♥ We love to see your comments and thoughts!:D

Here is an excerpt from "How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years" which directly pertains to our blog here:)
"a means of sharing perspectives with parents and colleagues. When families and others are invited to contribute to the documentation and share their own interpretations, it can provide even more insights that children, educators, and families can return to, reflect on, and remember in order to extend learning."

Thanks so much for making this shared journey so memorable and so very special... lots of love♥

Book reviewing and rewarding

 This Autumn has so many great reads that the kids are diving into their new book selections with great vigor.  I want them to get the most out of the new adventures they are taking in these wonderful books.  We've done our book reporting in a variety of ways and the idea is that if they can report on the events in the books they read, they have greater understanding of what they've read.  This will help you with comprehension in ways you can't yet imagine until you try... So grab a few of these ideas and review a book and I've enclosed some reward posters as well to reward your wonderful readers...
