I still remember getting all my school supplies and I was so excited to get everything organized for school. I hope I can pass on that excitement to the kids because I know it will not come from Ryan. He thinks I am crazy! Anyway, Jeremy is in his last year of preschool before Kindergarten and at his school, each child gets a workbook with all their supplies for the year.
Every week, they have a little bit of homework (the teacher says never to MAKE them do it) which includes writing a letter and number for the week OVER and OVER, cut and pasting pictures they find that start with the letter of the week and a connect the dot page that eventually makes a letter. Jeremy got his workbook on Monday and he loves it. He has loved practicing his letters so much that Ryan and I woke up to a quiet house at 7:30 and found Jbird quietly writing X and O in a book for tic tac toe. Notice he even crossed the X's in one of the squares.
We were told to put a picture of Jbird on the front so we took it to the next level and put pictures of J doing some of his favorite things. I cut most of the pics but J cut a few and did ALL the pasting.
I am going to enjoy that he loves doing his "homework" because I am sure that 5 years down the road, it will be like pulling teeth. Fun times!
