I am so happy with his progression at that school. I was so nervous about sending him to a Montessori school, but close to the end of Kindergarten, he has been doing 1st grade work. His teacher said that when he turns in his writing assignments, it is complete and beautiful...he takes his time and his pride in his work shows on the paper. Their writing samples that the school used for the state testing a couple weeks ago were hanging up near where we sitting. His had a picture of Batman and a sentence that he wrote on his own telling why he brought Batman for show and tell. He also wrote a letter to me on his own with limited spelling help.
I can't even explain how amazed I am at how smart he is and how he has developed. In the letter that he wrote, that is a picture of the two of us together in Jimmy John's clothes. What a ham! My 5 year old who looks like he is 7 is doing the same work as other 7 years old in 1st grade classes. It is astonishing. He is smart, kind, a good friend and role model.
So yea, like I said....make way for Proud Mama!
