Life in the threes
Abby moved up to the three's class at school (day care) last week. It's going better then I expected but she has cried every morning at drop off but one since she moved :( She rebounds quickly as soon as I'm gone and is always happy and fine when I call to check and see how she is. She is also happy as can be when I pick her up so I think she will be fine. Change freaks her out a little bit so I'm sure that is part of it. The classroom she is in is much bigger and has a lot more to do. They have the room sectioned off for different activities. There is a computer section where they get to work on real computers, a library section with comfy spots to lay and read, a puzzle section with Lots of puzzles (I think that is her favorite), a home living section with a big pretend kitchen area (another favorite), An art section filled with art supplies and more. They even have home work to work on during the week and turn in on Fridays. She is really showing more interest and motivation with her letter recognition and numbers too since she moved. Coincidence or not but she has also started throwing things when she is mad during the same week that she moved up. Haven't heard of her doing this at school yet but she definitely chucks things when she is mad at home. Hopefully this phase passes quickly.
