Literacy and Childhood

Childhood is about learning who you are and how you fit into the world.  It’s about trying on as many different hats as possible, and seeing how well you wear each.  It’s about learning through play.

I really though I’d have a lot to say today… but in all honesty?  I’m tired out after a day of play.  I love spending Thursdays in school with kid kid, but it does wear me out.  Some very positive news came out of today though!

A literacy expert sat in on the girl’s kindergarten class for about an hour this afternoon – and she was excited by the girl.  She’s promised that they will come up with a program that challenges Lily-Ann, one that helps encourage her already present enthusiasm for reading and creative play.  I am feeling so much better knowing that the girl is going to have someone (other than me) pulling for her at school.  Someone who gets just how important it is to not only focus on those who are behind, but those who have the potential to really excel.  So YAY!  🙂
