Three Good Things for the day, all revolving around our first parent-teacher conference at Sammy’s Montessori school:
The first words out of Sammy’s teacher’s mouth were, “She’s a very independent little girl.”
Sammy is the first in her age-group to start working with the Movable Alphabet, except for one boy who is almost four. (Of course, she’s probably also the only one who still poops in her pants practically every day but the teacher didn’t mention that.) It’s such a joy to see how she has carried her interest in reading into school, and that her teacher recognizes that interest.
Sammy’s teacher confirmed what I already knew: Sammy loves school, and is very happy there.
