So many exciting things going on this week! We're in the midst of developing our food truck businesses: designing logos and menus, creating advertising campaigns, calculating our break-even points, and beginning to think about our persuasive pitches to get investment from the teacher.
And yet one of the highlights of everyone's week is buddy time - the half hour Friday mornings, right before lunch, that we spend with our 5 year old Kindergarten buddies. Each week we share a different experience with them, from reading picture books, to teaching fine motor skills by helping them to use scissors, to enjoying a little fresh air. This week, after reading the following article about the importance of play (click here), I decided to take the 7s and Kindies outside to play a simple game of catch. The result? Big buddies demonstrating their patience, skill, and commitment to helping their little buddies be successful in every endeavour, beginning with the simple act of throwing and catching a ball.
