Trillium Room Dec. 12 with pictures

We’re really enjoying all of the things that make this time of year special.  Along with learning what “really cold” feels like, we’ve been lacing stockings, making snow scenes and enjoying the “gifts of the Gorge.”  We’ve been really impressed by how the kids are still working hard and attending to their work despite the big holiday season.

We’ve had a short week, so just a few reminders:  Next week is, of course, our final week before winter break.  Things to remember are:  friendship tokens (by Tuesday), and decorations for gingerbread cookies (also by Tuesday).  Both of these are optional.  Please email us right away if you don’t know about either of these.

Here’s the latest poem we’ve memorized.  It’s fun to hear the children recite it aloud.  Ask your child to recite it for you!

 

     Go Wind

by Lilian Moore

 

Go wind, blow
Push wind, swoosh.
Shake things
take things
make things
fly.

Ring things
swing thigs
fling things
high.

Go wind, blow
Push things — wheee.
No, wind, no.
Not me –not me.

Kristin Wold About Kristin Wold

This is my 25th year teaching in Corbett. I am incredibly fortunate to have brilliant, energetic colleagues; creative, supportive administrators; and parents who over-whelmingly love partnering with the school to make the best possible opportunities for their kids. I have a great job.
Professionally, my passion is working with emergent readers. I strongly believe that our first priority in teaching reading is to get kids to love books. We need to introduce them to authors and topics they’ll love so they’ll seek out reading for pleasure.
Personally, I have been married for 27 years and have a 14-year-old daughter who attends Corbett. I enjoy traveling, hiking in the gorge, and studying Japanese.
