I remember open house normally being held in the spring, so I am not entirely sure why they held it in January this year... maybe as an end of the semester check-in for the parents? Regardless, it was fun to go in and see what the girls have been up to at school, and extra special for John to pop in and say hi to their teachers and to see what they are up to and where they are spending their time. (I am at the school daily, so it isn't as much of a mystery to me.)
- Claire: Claire's classroom was DECKED OUT! Wintry-themed projects galore, lots of samples of her writing, several things to see: cubby, art room, library area, etc. Claire was SO excited to spot all of the work that was hers, and show us her cubby and all the special things about her classroom. I did my best to get a photo whenever we found something with her name on it :0) Claire is excelling in Kindergarten and really getting the hang of reading, writing, spelling, and her counting/number recognition. I am so proud of how much she has matured just since the beginning of the school year and can't wait to see where she will be in a few short months!
- Hannah: We went to Hannah's classroom next and again were not disappointed with the projects and work covering the walls and on the desks. Hannah's teacher had printed out a 'scavenger hunt' checklist for the kids to take the parents on, and Hannah took her list very seriously by showing us all around the class and each and every assignment she was supposed to. Hannah even had to race me on a multiplication math facts sheet! We were so busy on our hunt that my photo taking really died in Hannah's class, but I did get the photo on the left of her alliteration sentence using the first letter of her name. I thought it was really cute! Han is doing so well in school and we are so very proud of her drive to go above and beyond what is expected of her. We are also thankful for a teacher that recognizes her potential and pushes her to continually improve.
- The photo on the right is of Hannah dressed like she is 100 to celebrate the 100th Day of School. It was a little tough to come up with something for this, but we did the best we could with a cardigan, glasses, necklace, and a bun in her hair! I can't believe we are over halfway through the school year already... it honestly has gone by SO fast!
100th Day: February 4, 2013
