Walking towards Lola this afternoon at pick-up, I noticed her whispering with her teacher. As a mom, you know that something either really great happened or something not-so-great happened.
Luckily for me, it was a good day – Lola jumped up and down and yelled, “Mom, I was chosen to be the Child of the Day!”
She has patiently been waiting to be chosen as “Child of the Day.” Part of their Name Word Study Unit program, the Child of the Day is selected at random by the teacher. The focus of the program is to teach students how to recognize and spell the names of their classmates.
Students must fill a “Me Bag” with items that are meaningful to them and present them to their teacher and classmates. They even get interviewed. This is such an awesome idea and showcases why I love her school so much!
We rushed home and she quickly began to select which items she wanted to include in her Me Bag.
She choose to fill her bag with her favorite books, toys, souvenirs from our recent trip to Puerto Rico and a picture of her father and me. She is super excited to present her items to her class tomorrow.
