what is everyone else doing for the first day of school?
i was thinking of candle ceremony.
Can you tell me what a candle ceremony is?
hi well that’s I guess what I like to call it, but you know lighting a candle activity.... well i would like to during the first day while in the early morning group circle too light the candle and create a feeling of starting school is a new beginning for all in the school and
at this time children if they would like can talk about how they feel about school .
When I was in my training my director did something like this and I though it was beautiful.
What do you think?
If you think I could change something or add to this candle ceremony let me know.
That sounds beautiful. I've never seen it done. I don't have any ideas right now but if I think of something I'll be sure to post it.
