The kids colored in feet as one of our first day of school activities. These are their "line-up spots." They are always in the same spot in line unless they are the line leader or caboose. This is the first time I've ever done this, but it seems to be helping! I have a certain little friend who really needs to be towards the front of the line, so this seemed like a good solution without singling anyone out. Plus, there isn't any arguing over who got in line first!
We've been busy little bees since the beginning of school; I hope to have some pictures of the kids' work soon. Now we're into the new regional pre-assessments, so we're testing, testing, testing this week. On the plus-side, they do look fair. I just think it's a lot for 4 and 5 year-olds. Yes, I have 6 kids (out of 13) who either JUST turned 5 or won't turn 5 until November. Does anyone else think the cut-off date in NY should be August 1st?!
