These "toys" are ready for some trick or treat action!
We've already enjoyed dressing up for fun, pictures, and (me and the boys) a small party at the library last week. In the next couple of days come school parties, Trunks of Treats, trick or treat and even a costume night at their favorite restaurant-chickfila :)! Looking forward to enjoying all these things with Buzz, Woody & Jessie!
Tonight, I had the chance to meet with Sydney's teacher about her progress during our parent-teacher conference. The transition into Kindergarten was (is?) hard for me. However, God was really looking out for me when he gave us Mrs. Smith. We have no doubt that she is the best possible teacher Sydney could have this year...anywhere. I will be fighting my best two years from now to get JJ in her class.
Mrs. Smith is so pleased with Sydney's desire to please and excitement to learn. Socially, she said it amazes her how many friends Sydney has inside the class, and in other classes who she has met on the playground. This is funny to me since we knew only one other person across the 4 kindergarten classes just two months ago.
As a result of her early testing and progress the first two months, she is placed in the top reading and math groups for all of kindergarten when they split up the 4 classes in their own learning groups.
As far as math, she has already passed 3 of the 6 tests for kindergarten and will keep moving ahead at her own pace. If/when she completes the other 3, she will move onto first grade material.
With reading, earlier this week she passed the first of two emerging reading tests, and after the 2nd will move on to primary level.
She has never pulled a red stick, and collects blue sticks at a rapid pace! One day last week, she did receive a warning for talking to her friend Janie during writing lab :) and they had to walk a lap around the basketball court at recess. ha. Her most rebellious moment thus far...she and a friend cut their hair one day in the library. It broke her heart that Mrs. Smith wrote a note on her folder and sent that home.
Just about teared up tonight hearing your teacher brag on you SGM....Proud of you sweet princess!
