Lolly School

That's what preschool is called around here. Well, I guess that's not completely accurate seeing as Lolly is not actually Lolly's real name. Thank goodness for internet anonymity for paranoid mothers like me.

Every afternoon during Babs nap (yes, she is napping again, thank goodness) Lolly and I do preschool. It nothing super fancy. We have a letter of the week that we focus on and this month we do Halloween crafts on Fridays....or will be starting this Friday. We usually do a letter tracing sheet and a craft that goes along with our theme with a coloring sheet or two sprinkled in between. Last year my sister in law sent the link to this site, First School, which I have used every week for most of my lessons. It also links to other sites for crafts and other additional tools. It's fabulous and I highly recommend it for any of your kids entertainment or educational needs!

Although I've always known that Lolly is a smarty pants, she just never ceases to amaze me with how smart she is and how quickly she learns. She asks about doing preschool all day long and is so excited when it's finally time. We usually only spend about an hour or so, but that one on one time has been so wonderful for both of us.

Here are a few pictures of some projects that we've done lately in preschool.
Here's where we have started showcasing her work.
And this is our helpful reminder for what day it is...as long as I keep up with it!
And this is my preschool basket where I keep all my preschooly things.
Doesn't it look organized?! It's amazing the kind of tricks that cameras can play.
I have always loved school and it makes me so exceedingly happy to see how much she is enjoying her first little foray into education. I'm excited for her to start real school in a few years, but I'm a little terrified too. I'll just have to get her a back pack big enough that I can sneak into class with her everyday so that I don't miss a moment. And an extra Babs pouch too.

Look at you being such a fun, creative mommy. It looks like she's enjoying it.

I just love it when kids WANT to learn. My 4 year old son sang the ABCs on his own for a long while there, and then, out of the blue, ... "Mom? What ARE the ABCs?" He now can write and recognize all of them, and read more words than I would have thought possible.

Take advantage while you can!
