Symbols

On September 30th, we switched seats, and gave the Kindergarteners their symbols for the year.  Everyone gets a symbol from nature – a creature, a flower, an element.  We created a ceremony for this.  Each first grader was invited into our circle with the song “Who’ll Come Into My Wee Ring?”  As they joined the circle, they brought a Kindergarten learner with them (we worked this out during First Grade time the previous day).  As the pair joined the circle, I added the symbol to their new seat location.  Once everyone had joined the ring, they moved to their new seats to discover their symbols, and their new table mates
