Bring A Friend to Dance and Parent / Teacher Conference

Tuesday, November 16th, I babysat. Kaitlynn had dance class. It was Bring A Friend to Dance Class week. Jess and Helen met us at the dance studio. The girls were so cute!
After dance we went to McDonald's for lunch. It was so much fun hanging out with them.

Before leaving McDonald's, Kaitlynn got ready for preschool. We had already packed her snack (strawberries, apple dippers and raisins). We were a few minutes late for school, but Kaitlynn didn't miss anything.

The daily schedule said they read "Potluck," pretended to bake pies with cinnamon play dough, painted with puffy paint, went outside to play on the playground and in music sang / listened to "A Turkey Is A Funny Bird."

Hanna and Adam came over to babysit Kaitlynn while Dave and I went to Kaitlynn's Parent / Teacher Conference. Our first Parent / Teacher Conference! We met with Ms. Maureen. She said Kaitlynn has the routine down and can follow the schedule well. She is learning to advocate for herself and will suggest different ways to play something (such as a game). She loves the sensory areas (water and sand tables) and the pretending areas. She isn't much into the writing center, but Ms. Maureen said that was developmentally appropriate and to be expected. She does need help with turn taking and not taking things from her peers. She does try all the different projects / tables and centers. She isn't much into writing her name and says she can't when asked. She sometimes has / lately has some issues with story time / paying attention during group time. She also likes to start tasks, but sometimes won't finish them. The conference went really well and the teacher said Kaitlynn is a joy to have in class. We were very pleased with how well Kaitlynn is doing. This is her first year in preschool and basically first time away from me for any length of time.

Dave and I had dinner together at Qdoba. He went home and I went back to Kaitlynn's school for a parenting session called Good Night Sleep Tight.
