Show and Tell

I was fortunate today to arrive just in time to see Christian give his very first Show and Tell presentation of the year!   His class last year didn't do Show and Tell, so I was impressed with the confidence he had today.

Christian's First Day of Kindergarten V2.0

Today was the big day!  Christian's first day of kindergarten V2.0.     We are so thrilled he got the teacher whose classroom adjoins last year's teacher and he will get to see her, too, on a regular basis.

Christian liked his afternoon of "extended care."  There are only 12 kids in the class and they do all sorts of fun things.   One thing that is included is "Brain Rest," where the kids have to lay on a cot for 45 minutes.  At Meet the Teacher Night, I asked if the kids would be allowed to read a book and the answer was no.   They really do have to lay there and do nothing.  Turns out, Christian took a nap, and for that I am glad.  He's in school this year from 7:30am - 4:00pm.  And that is a LONG day for a little kid!
