Conference yesterday. He's doing well, struggling in a couple of areas, but considering the materials are light years ahead of what he was doing last year, he's doing extremely well. I adore the teacher. He carefully seated him with three other boys who were great kids with good families. I noticed he is acting more his age and I think, "No wonder!" Montessori often combines varied age groups together which I could see the advantages in some areas, but not when the child is consistantly acting and year or two younger than his/her age.
He's taking piano and loving it, and is looking forward to joining choir.
He and PawPaw went walking the neighborhood for the school fundraiser and had a great time. PawPaw was puffing a bit though.
He was the greatest gentleman when my sister was here. He sometimes had some acting out problems when company was around because he liked the attention AND his routine was interrupted as well.
I don't know if this is part of Barbara Bush's initiative or President Bush's, but there is a stringent reading program the kids need to keep up with. I laughed when Sage chose a 200 page book entitled "Twenty Ways to Bug Your Parents."
The teacher is a reader! The last book they read was a story about Amelia Earhart and Eleaonor Rooseveldt. That is good. If your child can grasp a love for reading, they are guaranteed years of enjoyment and enrichment!
