With this transition, and the start of a new school year, we have reorganized the “big kids.” We have moved up two 3 year olds into the big kid class, so this week it was fun working with them on holding a pencil correctly and having more responsibility. Thanks to family and friends, I got to bring down coloring books, puzzles, picture cards, sidewalk chalk, little toys and balloons for the kids. They have enjoyed using all the new stuff and are excited to learn. Also, at Christmas a church in the States donated a lot of books, so many that they still are not all here yet. The kids love to hold a book and look at the pictures. It’s been fun teaching them how to hold the books and look at the pictures from left to right. When they get their own books, its fun to listen to them all talk through the story/ pictures out loud.
