The Beginning of the Festivities
Started my Family Literacy Day Celebration by sitting in with Aidan's class for their opening exercises, and helping out with some Scholastic Book orders. I was glad to be a part those kids are awesome.
I recall singing the national anthem in the morning when I went to school, but I do not remember Motown being played over the P.A. System they played Motown this morning -like I mean real music, the whole track and not the Mini Pops....and I was sitting there like- I don't remember Senior Kindergarten being like this at all (The Word Dopeness kept going through my mind as I watched all these kindergartners listen and some of them kind of wiggle to the music.)
Then we sang O Canada- I hummed in English they belted it out in French, they practiced sentences and phrases and vocabulary, picked the days helpers and scattered off to their centers. I sat at a table with two little students that were cutting and pasting and I got to listen in on their conversations about "Snoopy and Poopy"...lol!
While I sat in class I tried not to stare at Aidan the whole time but I was almost overwhelmed with a sense of pride. Seeing him interact, communicate and receive instruction in a different language then the one I am usesd to. Him socializing with his peers and actually sitting and paying attention much more then he does with his own parents was a wonderful treat.
I sometimes wonder why Aidan is so happy/hyper when he gets off the school bus and now I know why! If school is like this everyday and runs this smoothly plus they have a snack time, next to Disney World that classroom has got to be one of the safest, friendliest, happiest places on earth. After this morning I feel like I maybe doing a few things right with him. He's a really sweet kid. And if your kids are in his class they are awesome too!
Off to the rest of the day now!
The main event tonight will be a "supercharged bedtime story fiasco" in honor of Family Literacy Day and we will celebrate again this Saturday....HOORAY!
