I don't know what Sam's name tag is used for but he wasn't cooperating for a picture on his first visit day. I think he looks so unsure in the picture and I know it was taken on his first full day so he probably was. Or I'm just reading into things. Sam has told us a surprising amount about school, especially considering he never ever told us anything about preschool last year. Therefore we'd already heard about how each kid has a basket for their collection of things they find outside. Sam is obviously into gathering sticks.
Sam wanted me to read him a book in the reading centre so I obliged.
Rachel discovered another activity while I was reading to Sam and Dave and I had a good laugh about Sam's answer on the class list below. We think they were trying to establish classroom rules. Sam's idea about "In our class we..." was "count to 105 and even farther." Ha ha ha!!!
Supper was served before we got to go in the school. It was hot dogs and popcorn. The popcorn line was really long and we got some of the last twenty bags so we had to document our hard earned popcorn.
I was really glad to get a glimpse into Sam's life at school. His teacher, Ms. K., told us Sam has been doing really well at school and we were glad to hear that. We were even happier to see how comfortable Sam was in his classroom and how excited he was to show us around. Now I have a little more context for how Sam spends his days and a lot more reassurance that this really is a good thing for him.
