Little Learners have big dreams


By Edna Sailor
Little Learners scrambled into a classroom at Parshall Elementary School this month. It is a new program for three to five year olds and will help them orient to the idea of school and other positive experiences before Kindergarten.
The 13 new students were off to a good start learning to move in an orderly manner from school room to playground  with the guidance of their teachers, Whitney Carter and assistant Eli Schwarz and a long rope to grasp which keeps children focused on their line. Once they arrived, the four slides, and an assortment of other play equipment allowed thirteen energetic little ones to burn off quite a bit of energy. Some kids learned that climbing up the slide when others are coming down is probably not a good idea. Teacher Whitney assisted them with that lesson.
Still there was no complaining from the little ones when play time was done and they headed back into the brightly decorated classroom to figure out some puzzles, shapes and learn to sing their ABCs. One student headed straight for a picture book. Soon they were all gathered around their table to listen to instructions (something they are working on right now) and prepare for the next lesson.
