Joe has had a great start to school. He loves kindergarten. Friday, January 29, will mark his 100th day of school. This is a very big accomplishment for the Kindergartners. There is a party scheduled. We had to make an 100-day poster. We have to bring 100 pieces of a treat of our choice to school. Joe can now easily write, using the appropriate upper and lower case letters, his last name. He is also keeping a journal in Mrs. Schempp's class. It is fun to read his thoughts and ideas as a 6-year-old. He can count by 5's and 10's. Joe knows all the coins by name & knows their value in pennies. Since starting kindergarten, Joe's knowledge is so vast that I can hardly keep up with him.
Joe Enjoying The Summer
Jack is enjoying pre-school. He was moved from the toddler room to the preschool room in August. Jack also participates in the TumbleBus at school. The TumbleBus is a gutted-out school bus filled with gymnastics equipment. Each week the TumbleBus has a theme. This week the theme was dinosaurs. Jack really likes it. Jack recognizes all the letters in upper & lower case as well as through sign language. He is starting to write.
