I forgot to report that we had parent teacher conferences at Maddie's school a couple weeks ago. Maddie's teacher said that Maddie is doing excellent in school and knows everything that she is supposed to at this point. She is definitely ready for Kindergarten next year. This Spring, they are going to start working on sight words, simple reading, time and money. Matt and I are definitely impressed with the curriculum that her school uses in pre-school. It is basically the same that the public school uses in Kindergarten.
Maddie's teacher did say that the girls in Maddie's class fight a lot. They are always telling each other that you're not my friend today. I know that's what you get when you have so many girls in the same class but we definitely had to talk to Maddie about that. She promises that she will be nice to everyone and we helped her think of some things to say if girls are not being nice to her. So, we'll see how the rest of the year goes! Man, 4 yr. old drama is crazy!
