Her new teacher sent home the most wonderful memo about her personal teaching philosophy. The basic thought was that she hates to hear "I can't" from her students. I smiled, because I teach my girls to add "yet" to the end of that statement (I can't yet). I told her that she could send homework home to me of anything she would do outside the class (cutting, stapling, copying, laminating, coloring, sorting, grading - anything!) and she took me up on my offer the very first day! Cool! I got to make Math Dictionaries for each of the kids. Fun!
May really enjoys her teacher and her class and is off to a great start in Third Grade. Here are some pics of her heading off the school (she had PE the first day, so is dressed accordingly).
