    Young Writers Award and Publication

    When we returned from our holiday Ethan had a letter waiting for him. This isn’t something unusual in our house as the children do tend to get more letters than us. Normally they are appointments or reports that need to be kept in a safe place. Ethan has more paperwork that I dare to count. This letter was different though it contained a certificate. A certificate for a talent for writing. Ethan had written an original piece of creative writing and it was selected for publication in a young writers anthology. Now I must admit my first response to this was that is was sent to the wrong Ethan. There…

    Star Of The Day – Sharing Holiday Adventures

    Coming home from Florida, the jet lag and the return to school really upset our little boy. He coped really well with the changes that the holiday brought with it. We had a few meltdowns but overall he enjoyed his holiday and coped really well with all the different hotel rooms, even the unexpected added room at the end of our trip. This was brought about by a cancelled flight and a change of plans that Ethan also had to deal with. Back at home he kept asking ‘what’s next’ and after such a busy holiday adventure I think that is quite understandable. Who wants to return home after a…

    Learning The Months Of The Year

    For quite a while now Ethan has been obsessed with the calendar. He knows the days of the week and he has been learning the months of the year. This was mostly introduced by going to school but also self-taught with the help of you tube. The week before last a message was sent home from school letting us know which videos they watch on You Tube. Ethan couldn’t believe it when I put on the months of the year song on his iPad. Last week was filled with videos playing songs for the months of the year and the days of the week. Little E is also in on…

    Star Of The Week And A Visit From The Class Bear

    On Friday Ethan was awarded Star of the Week for sitting in the circle at circle time. I can see a sitting theme forming for Ethan as he was awarded Star of the Day last week for his sitting. He likes to move around a lot, not to mention his jumping from sitting position! I don’t envy the teachers at all but he must be doing well to be given these awards. As in his last class being awarded Star of the Week means that you also get to bring home the class bear. This was news to us on Friday evening but it was something that both children were…

    Awarded Star Of The Day For Sitting

    Last week Ethan came home with a ‘Well Done’ sticker on his jumper. The fact that he had kept this sticker on is an achievement in itself as Ethan doesn’t ‘do’ stickers! I wondered what it was for and wished that I could ask him. His book bag soon answered my questions. Inside was a certificate awarding Ethan Star of the Day for sitting. We have yet to talk to Ethan’s teachers about how he is settling into his new class. We know that Ethan likes to keep ‘busy’ and move about. The fact that he was awarded a Star of the Day for sitting must mean that he is moving…
