Ashlea usually tells me she has had a good day by saying:
Had a good day Mrs CookWhich means she had a good day with her teacher Mrs Cook.
However, she tells me this everyday, regardless of whether it was a good day or a bad day. So I measure preschool success in terms of dirt and paint stains.
Paint all over her hands... check.
Paint on her face... check.
Paint on her clothes... check.
Yep, another great day at preschool.
Ashlea is absolutely LOVING preschool. There was a time when I wondered how on earth she would cope in that environment, but she has come so far and is thriving at preschool. She loves painting and drawing, she loves stories and letters, she loves the pet bird Stormie, she loves her teachers. Everything. She loves it. Her language is improving all the time too and I'm sure preschool is helping with that. The other day she was having a grizzle because she wanted to see Stormie. I knew she wanted to see him, but wasn't going to give in until she asked for what she wanted. Once upon a time she would have just said:
StormieThen over time it became:
Wan' see stormieOn Friday it was:
I want to see him.
Look at all those prepositions (is that what they're called?)!!!
Amazing. And of course for language like that she definitely got to see Stormie!
