Isaak is doing very well. The little man is ready for the big Kindergarten. He still needs to learn how to tie his shoes. That's always so hard at this stage.
This time around they didn't have too much to tell me. He could do most of the things on their list.
- He mixes up q and d. That's normal on up to 2nd grade.
- He skips 12, but can count to 29. He can keep counting if you help him move on to 30, then 40 and so on.
- He knows all his colors, shapes.
- He understands how to make a pattern.
- He can read some small words.
- His most recent things to do are that he can snap well and skip.
- He writes good on line paper. They practiced that at school.
- I had given them a list of computer games to try out with the little tikes last time. Mrs. L lost that, so I gave her a new copy.
- I mentioned that they could just ask people for additional money every week for field trips. Then they wouldn't need to hit people up for exact change and check people off for paying and not paying. They are looking into that, but thought it was a good idea. It totally doesn't effect me, but I just think it would be easier. I said, "You could charge more than what the field trips cost, so you know you have enough. The rest could go for a donation."
- I also talked to them about this paint clear medium that I gave them. I gave them more ideas on how to use it.
Isaak was at the sand table with his friend we'll call M. Isaak told M to dump sand over his head. Mrs. L saw him doing that. She yelled, "Stop it!" She says she never yells, but did this time. Both boys looked up at her. M said, "But Isaak told me to dump sand on his head!" Mrs. L asked, "Isaak did you tell M to dump sand on your head?" Isaak started shaking his head as if to say, "Yes". Of course as he was shaking his head sand was going everywhere.
That's totally Isaak. He tells Mica to battle him. Then Mica gets scolded; when it was Isaak that brought it up.
Isaak loves sculpture and collage. Here's a project he made with Daddy this week:
The mushroom carton isn't part of the sculpture. It was just helping it all dry. It's a bunny make out of popsicle sticks and rocks.
