“We are going to the zoo. The first thing we are going to do is go on the merry-go-round.”
Yesterday, Lucia brought home a photocopy of a writing assignment she’d done at school, one that wasn’t going to be sent home until the end of the year. Her teacher had added a post-it that said Lucia had been proud of her work and wanted to show us. Indeed, when I talked to her about it, she was incredibly proud and excited--the crucial part of it being that she did it entirely herself. Planning what to say, sounding out the words, writing them down. A truly exciting kindergarten moment.
