Summer is here—in all of its glory!
The sun is strong, the rain is gentle, and the flower and vegetable gardens are thriving.
I don’t know who originally created the following “garden,” but beyond the play on words that brings a smile, there is wisdom and guidance here for all of us. This is a perfect reflection for this season. Enjoy!
Remember, what we sow, we later reap.
5 Rows of “P”s
4 Rows of “Squash”
3 Rows of “Let Us”
… be true to ourselves
… be loyal and unselfish
… be faithful to our purpose
3 Rows of “Turn Up”
… your enthusiasm
… your conviction
… your determination
This is the time of the year to reflect—upon the school year just completed, and the new year to begin. This summer, during this planning time, this goal-setting phase for both directors and teachers alike, consider planting this “garden” in your early childhood program. It’s a great way to set the tone for the year to come.
