Hannah started pre-school last week. Its a neighborhood/mom run affair with only 6 kids. We moms take turns teaching for a week at a time (2 days a week only). Hannah was so excited to start "school" just like Garrett. Each week focuses on a certain letter, number, shape & color among other things. Above is Hannah's painting on her first day. If you look closely, you can see they worked on the letter "A".
When Garrett came home from school that night, he asked Hannah what she did at pre-school. She told him they learned about letters, sang ABC's, learned about numbers, snipping (cutting), and did painting. Garrett's immediate response was, "Hey! No fair! We don't get to paint at all this year!" And this is probably true. There were no paints in his school supplies. Apparently there is no painting in the 3rd grade. I'm sure there will be lots of other fun things to do.
I really never thought I'd put my kids in pre-school. Garrett didn't go and he has done fine in school. I feel a little bad because Hannah will miss the school deadline by 7 days. I'm secretly a little worried that she'll be more than ready to go and by the time she does go to school, she'll be bored. I guess we'll just see what happens. For now, she is loving pre-school, loving the activities and the social fun. I am loving the 2 hrs a day with only Ryan and he usually naps during that time! Yes, preschool is cool!
