"Bethy" (heart, drawing of her teacher Miss Maggie and one of Bethy), "I em (am) glad to be in shool (school). I love shool" (school).
Now that, my friends, is a good beginning.The class guidelines are "bees" as in Be a good listener, Be kind, and so forth. Bethy is our little queen B so she is all over this concept and tickled to death she has a bumblebee with her name on it designating her cubby.
Already her Arabic teacher has talked with the students about Ramadan (their first day, which Bethy told me all about), and I have gotten rave reviews from her about the library and art classes and how she loves music class.
