Back To School 2014

Yesterday the kids started back to school. We had a very good summer which went by quicker than I am used to! So now I have a pre-K student, a 2nd grader, and a 4th grader!

Zachary checking out his locker during drop-in day.

Zachary looking at the books in the 2nd grade classroom.

And looking at the board in Hebrew class.

This is why I’m worried about Zachary. Granted he completed this towards the end of 1st grade…but it looks more like kindergarten work to me. Here’s what it says:
What I’m looking forward to in 2nd grade: Chag Chumash (when the kids get their books of Torah)
What I want my teacher to know about me: My favorite color is blue
A question I have about 2nd grade: How long is recess?
Why / How I’ll be a great 2nd grader: I will work hard.
He also wrote his name in Hebrew, both print and script, but backwards.

Glad it was a great first day back, but I too have a few worries and jitters here mainly for Emma with starting kindergarten. She is so quiet and shy, so I definitely hope she will be ok and able to speak up more in school this year.

I can't believe your kids have lockers in elementary school. I never got to have one, even in high school so I'm a tiny bit jealous!

Dara said...

haha, they enjoy those lockers for sure!
