My friend Heather decided to teach preschool this year. I was so excited when she invited Eli to attend! I knew she'd do a great job with the kids. The day before preschool actually started (Sept. 23), Heather had a time for Eli to come so he would know where to hang his backpack and see where preschool would take place, and also do a little assessment so that Heather knew where Eli was in terms of learning.
Heather made a little chair cubby out of capri sun boxes for each of the kids that would hold their pencils, scissors, and workbooks. She is so creative! :) She also turned one wall in her dining room into the preschool wall. She has hooks for backpacks, spaces for their names, weather, calendar, job chart, sight words, alphabet, colors, among other things. Eli was pretty excited!
This is Eli's first day of preschool. I almost forgot to take his picture! Heather lives kitty corner from us just down the Alley behind our houses, so we are able to walk--it's great!

Happy first day of preschool! September 24, 2013
