Our First Day isn't anything spectacular, just more to recognize the fact that we're transitioning back into a bit more structure and routine. We actually take a vacation in September, so August is usually still pretty slow for us, but it's more intentional once we have our First Day.
All we did this year was take a few pictures, complete a First Day Interview, work on an upcoming review and together we did a few short lessons from our first row. (We're trying out Five in a Row, if you missed our curriculum post.)
If you know our Emory, you know the title of that book pretty much sums this kid up!
Elliott - 2nd Grade
His favorite color is still red, he wants to work in a LEGO store when he grows up, his favorite thing about himself is that he's the oldest kid, and he wants to do geography this year.
Emory - Kindergarten
When he grows up he wants to be a ninja turtle, something he really likes is eating, and something he really doesn't like is green peppers. When asked what his favorite thing about himself he laughed: "I don't know what my favorite thing about myself is, because I am myself!"
Reminds me of the Dr. Seuss quote "Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!"
