Two of my students, who are brother and sister, were elated to welcome another sister into their family. Their kindergarten sister could be heard repeatedly proclaiming to all who arrived in the parking lot Tuesday morning, "Today is the day Baby Elisabeth will be born!" With such a small student body, we quickly and easily become a close-knit group and greatly "rejoice with those who rejoice." Our class made cards for Baby Elisabeth, and I also had big brother and big sister write a letter to their newest sib. (Thanks for the letter writing idea, Donna!)
Despite many invitations from the others to join them at the table, he wanted to work at his desk, perhaps so he could spread out all his supplies and really concentrate. :-)
Welcome Baby Elisabeth!
