Madi was awake bright and early this morning, super excited for her first day of school! She got dressed in her special first day outfit and talked non stop through breakfast to Jack about where she was going.
When she arrived at school she was happy to see Nana, Papa, Grandma and Grandpa who were waiting for her to wish her good luck. She showed everyone the school entrance and office and took some pictures before making her way into her classroom.
Once she got to her class, she went right in and said good morning to her teacher. Her ECE was also there to say hello and she also met her EA. Her teacher welcomed everyone, went over some logistics with the parents and then showed everyone the first activity. Madi and her classmates traced their footprint, put their names on them and decorated them for their class board. Then they went on a scavenger hunt around the classroom to see all the different learning areas. Madison was most excited to see the “house” centre and the “listening centre”. It was then circle time and for all the parents to leave. Madison was happy and excited for her first day.
When Daddy picked her up she was all smiles. She told Mommy and Daddy that she loved her first day and wants to go back tomorrow. She loved running around at recess and told her class about her Walker.
Mommy and Daddy were very impressed with the communication book. She was able to sit independently on the carpet, use the washroom with no accidents, chose the house centre for free play, used her Walker during recess, chose to colour and use stamps during the second free play, and asked for help several times when needed. It was a great first day!
