"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

This image was taken last summer on my way to Lantau Island.  I shared it today at York Region District School Board's Great Beginnings course to educators new to the Full-Day Early Learning-Kindergarten program.

Thank you for a memorable day, and keep this quote with you as you proceed through your journey!  I'm looking forward to another great three days together! :)

Special thank you to Julie Ham for agreeing to teach this with me!

  1. My husband and son went to Lantau Island (while my daughter and I went to visit a friend at the Canadian International School and Stanley Market). They visited and chatted with a bunch of fishermen and my husband took a picture of a statue (which now lives in our bathroom!). I don't think they climbed that staircase!

  3. Your post on Great Beginnings has made me think of the beginning of a great school year. I have been following your blog for a couple of months and love all your great ideas. I teach Full Day Kindergarten in B.C. and have been incorporating the Reggio Emilia approach wherever I can. I was wondering what your daily schedule looks like?
    Thanks so much, Kandace

  4. Hi Kandace!!

    That seems to be the burning question on several educators minds!!

    I will try to write a post about it this weekend.

    Thanks for following our blog all the way in B.C. You live in a beautiful province!!

    Warmly,

    Joanne

    P.S. I appreciate your kind feedback!

  5. Would you have an example of what it's like when your students arrive in the morning?
