What a whirlwind weekend! I have a week's worth of posts all ready for you! From Friday's school program to yesterday's Memorial Day BBQ!
Friday night was Lallie's end of year school program called Look What I Did. Lallie is a Montessori student and this is the time of year when she gets to take us into her classroom and show us all her favorite work and activities. They also engage the parents in the activities they do during the day such as singing and line time.
Here's Lallie showing Daddy her world map. It's not finished yet, but I'm amazed that she did this all by herself! The teachers helped the students trace out the continents and then they spend all year talking about the different continents, their countries, climates and cultures. They bring in food, music and art projects to help them learn about the world. I'm amazed that Lallie knows all seven continents! I'm pretty sure I didn't know that when I was 3 1/2 years old! She even knows that we live in North America (granted, she thinks the grandparents live in exotic South American, but hey, I'm still impressed!)
Here's Lallie showing us some of her Practical Life work. These are activities that help the children learn about everyday habits such as spooning, tying shoes, pouring and cleaning (such as using a broom). Here she's using an eye dropper to place droplets in small containers.
And science! And I'm proud of Lallie in this sense. She's examining bugs, which quite frankly, shocked Husband and I as Lallie is NOT a bug person!
During line time, Lallie showed us her dance moves and how to spell "family" in sign language. She was a little timid in the dancing (and thank goodness Husband didn't snap any pictures of me dancing like a robot!)
Afterwards, we headed out to eat as a celebration and Lallie had a HUGE M&M ice cream sundae! She was a happy camper and was so excited to show us her school.
Happy Tuesday Y'all!
