Blake and I had our first parent/teacher conference for Mason yesterday, and I am pleased to say he is a very bright, perfectly normal, stubborn, mischievous, 3 1/2 year old. It's very interesting because she is the same teacher Braden had, and fortunately she has a oldest child much like Braden and a second son a lot like Mason. She doesn't deny that Mason loves to push the limits, but she said it all with a genuine smile. He is so proud of all of his projects and activities at Preschool, and every morning asks if it's a "Preschool day". He only goes on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 8:30-11:15, but we hope to start him in the afternoon Preschool program offered where he goes to daycare. We did the same thing with Braden and by the time he turned 5, he seemed more than ready for Kindergarten.
Attached is the letter she had for us, with a few pictures of him in action.
I know it's hard to read, in the picture, but the text on his Happy Note says:
Mason’s Happy Note
This semester we have seen Mason grow and mature. Mason is a very fun and energetic child. We feel that he really enjoys preschool. Mason can usually be found in the science center or in the sensory table. This semester we have seen Mason recognize his name, identify basic shapes and colors, he will sit and listen at meeting and participate in our activities. Mason can tell us about recent experiences and retell stories. He can also string beads, freely paste and glue, and loves to participate in sensory activities. Mason is on track with his social emotional development. He is regular in attendance and separates from parents with ease. He can follow our daily routines and changes activities without difficulty.
