Today Sam finished his first year of real preschool. Our next door neighbor teaches preschool out of her home so he was able to just cross our yard twice a week and go over to their place for preschool. It was the perfect thing for him! He learned so much, and was so excited to come home every day and show us what he’d learned :) Probably his favorite thing all year was the name tags that they would write each month. Every month he’d bring one home and wanted me to tape it to his door, so he now has quite the collection. I wish I had kept them in order so you could really see how he progressed in tracing his name.
They had a little program to show off some of the cool things they learned this year. And I do mean little, the whole program is less than 4 minutes, so don’t be intimidated about watching it, it doesn’t take very long.
In the fall Sam will be going to preschool at our local elementary school for their tuition preschool program. I wish I knew earlier on that Anna would be offering a different curriculum next year, I probably would have had Sam stay for both years if I’d known. But by the time I knew that I’d already gotten Sam too pumped to go to the elementary school and ride the bus. I think it will be a great experience for him and a good transition to kindergarten but this year was such a great experience (and so convenient!) I would definitely do it again. Thanks Miss Anna for a wonderful year! We can’t wait until Danny is old enough to come and do preschool too :)
