Celebration of Learning 2009

Every year Maddie has done a Celebration of Learning presentation at the end of the school year to show off her stuff.  When she was three years old, I was simply bamboozled that the word “chrysalis”  came out of her mouth! When she was four, I was ecstatic that she loved learning more than anything.  This year was no different and it was a very special event indeed.  I cannot believe how much she has grown and what she has accomplished this school year.  She’s just happy all of the time.  I always thought kids would wake up with belly aches sometimes and need days home from school to just chill.  Maddie is not one of those kids though. Everyday, no matter what, she wants to go to school!

Maddie’s frog Moovie (Maddie typed the title!)

Maddie came home all excited because she had tadpoles in her classroom the other day.  She was telling me all about the life cycle of a frog so I asked her if she wanted to make a movie.  Being our kid, of course she wanted to make an iMovie of the frog cycle.  We searched the internet and I taught her how to right click on a Mac while I was at it.  If a five year old can do it…..

Enjoy the movie! (Email subscribers: go to the actual blog to view the movie!)

The Third First Day

How did this happen? My daughter is attending her third first day of school. She has been chomping at the bit for nearly three weeks to get back to school. A week ago she chose what she would be wearing. Two days before she packed most of her snack for the first day of school. The day before school started we snuck into school at 5:00pm so we could go to the board where the class lists were posted. Alas, Maddie found out that she was going to have Mrs. Howitt. Maddie already has a connection with Ms. Howitt (actually she has a connection with most of the teachers since we work in the school). But she has a special connection with Lynsey. When Lynsey had her baby boy, Ben, back in May, Maddie drew a Baby ben a picture and delivered it to him in the hospital when he was a day old.
