Serra's School Stuff

Serra's Valentine's for her school friends- it says "I could use S'more friends like you" and has 2 graham crackers, 2 heart marshmallows and 1 mini Hershey bar.  Saw it on Pinterest a while back and when I showed Serra all the ideas I'd found this was the one she liked the most- and she did most of the assembly!

Serra's kindergarten class had a "job fair" where the kids made posters and dressed as what they wanted to be when they grow up- Serra chose a teacher [she's VERY excited about the laminated photo ID lanyard that I made her like her teacher wears!]  It was interesting to see the diversity in her class- there were doctors, policemen, a paleontologist, a detective, a performer, vets, soccer players, a baker, a florist, a fireman and more that I can't remember right now!

 For Dr. Suess Day Serra knew EXACTLY what character she wanted to dress like [for those of you who don't know, she's Daisy-head Maisy!]

Serra has been attending school at Lakeview Academy, a local charter school.  A lot of people thought I was crazy driving 3 miles to & from each day to take Serra to school when there is a public elementary school just 5 houses away.  Now that we're halfway through the school year, I can say that it has been worth every mile/minute!  Serra adores her teacher, Mrs. Thompson- and her teacher has admitted on several occasions that Serra is one of her favorites.  Every Tuesday and Thursday Serra sees a speech therapist- it's going well, but Serra still has some issues with forming her thoughts into phrases that make sense.  In time, no one will probably notice.  Monday through Thursday she gets 30 minutes of computer time using an i-Ready program to supplement her with reading and math.  I go to her classroom every Monday morning to help out [Alex gets to play at a friend's house while I'm there].  It's amazing how much Serra has developed over the last few months- I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings!  And she is counting down the months until she's 6 and gets to go to 1st grade [she wants to be at school for a full day and eat lunch there]!
