We had "Meet the Teacher Night" at Jacob's school last night. It was basically a meeting in the child's room where you met the teacher and received some papers saying what the were doing in class every day with a schedule and we went over that. They kids showed of some of the work they've been doing and showed their room off. Jacob was so glad to have us there and he was very proud of some of his drawings. I didn't know this, but he has even written a story already and shared it with the whole class. I found that interesting as he doesn't even know how to read yet or write words. The teacher said that they sound out words the way they think they are spelled and that's how they write. She also has a 30 minute block where each table has her to help them spell words for their stories if they feel they need her help. It was cute to see him in his room and see how proud he was of his class and friends. I really enjoyed it.
This morning he has a breakfast for the Grandparents for Grandparent's day. Mr. Big's parents came and picked him up and took him to school so they could spend time with him there. He was very excited! Donuts and juice and some time with your doting Grandparents, what could be better than that??
