Lana is so excited about being in a 4 year old classroom!
She got to meet her teachers today:
Mrs. Jill is on the left, and Mrs. Nicole is on the right.
I can't even begin to tell you what a perfect fit these two teachers are for my girl!
They are two of the most gentle, compassionate women that I know...they are both very good at accepting each students as they are, and then helping them move to the next step....they do the most wonderful, creative things in their classroom...and have I mentioned that they are AMAZING teachers?! I am so thrilled about this year.
We baked muffins for Meet the Teacher Day....Lana was so proud to give them to her teachers!
I have learned that even if Lana is excited, she sometimes has a hard time in new situations, and becomes very shy. Often letting her bring a small gift or having a special job to do makes the transition easier for her.
She's the class encourager!
That means when she seems someone doing something the right way, or being kind to their friends, etc., she is to tell them what a great job they are doing.
This is the perfect task for my girl to get her acclimated into her classroom.
Just before we left, Mrs. Nicole showed Lana their positive behavior reward system.
Because they are the "Frogs," they can earn "cattails" for good behavior and making wise choices. When they earn 5 cattails, they get to go to the treasure box.
She earned her first cattail for coming today!
We are really so very excited about the year that Lana will have with Mrs. Nicole and Mrs. Jill.
More to come on Thursday...her last first day of preschool.
