Notes From Teacher

On June 25, 2010, in Biracial, by Honeysmoke

Children grow up so fast and spend a considerable amount of time away from their parents. During the school year, Simone’s preschool teachers wrote a few sentences about each day. The notes paint a picture of what Simone was like in 2009-2010. I can’t believe she will be in kindergarten in just two months.

Here are some of the updates I like. It will be fun to share them with Simone when she is much older.

Simone likes to make a train out of the chairs and take trips.

Simone can follow four-part directions.

Simone helped someone clean up a mess the other child made without being asked.

Simone has been very helpful with the children who just moved up. She is excited to have more girls in the room.

Simone often reminds her classmates of the class rules.

Simone was so happy her grandmother got to see her school and room.

Simone enjoyed playing in the leaves on the playground today.

Simone has been enjoying building in the block center. She built a throne today out of waffle blocks.

Simone was so proud she could write an “e” today. We had been showing her. I think she didn’t want to mess it up. Apparently, all it took was Daddy showing her.

Simone engages in group and solitary play.

Simone was excited about the new sand in the sandbox. She called it glitter snow.

Simone is eager to find out what is on the agenda each day.

Simone can sequence events in a story.

  • I agree with both of you. We’re trying to savor the moments.

    I agree with Blanc2’s comment about the swift passage of time. I have one granddaughter who will be 13 in August and the other three grandkids are fast on her heels.

    This is why God created grandparents: to give you a second chance to savor those moments over again with another set of kids!

    My son, who about 10 or 15 minutes ago was a toddler starting pre-school, will start high school this autumn. He is taller than I am, and all of his clothes sizes are larger than mine. I can hardly believe it. Seems like just a blink of an eye. Savor these young years while you can. They go so fast you won’t even believe it (not that the teen years are bad, I enjoy them too, but there are already reminders that in another blink of an eye we’ll be facing an empty nest).
