This week Miss Wilzbach's second-grade class learned about what characteristics are. They learned that all characters have characteristics that make up who they are. They are on the outside and the inside. Outside characteristics are what a person looks or sounds like. Inside characteristics are who they are and what they have on the inside. Both kinds of characteristics are important because they make us who we are!
The first day of school . . . is a pretty BIG day for students, parents and teachers, parents take pictures of their children to mark the first day of school. Students dutifully have their pictures taken, give last hugs and boldly go to a new year with new teachers and new friends. Teachers welcome students as they boldly or meekly come into their classes. For some Teachers this is old hat, for others it is a first, but for all teachers this is a new day! A day to discover who each person is, a day to be BIG!
