Here he is on the last day of first grade.
K.C. loved his teacher this year and so did we! We could not have had a better teacher or first grade experience than we had.
First grade was a year of many "firsts" for our boy. His first "real" homework, first spelling tests, first book report (on Indiana Jones) and so many other things. We are so proud of the boy he is and is becoming.
K.C. is inquisitive about every single thing. I hope he always questions, wonders and asks until he has an answer that satisfies him. This will carry him far in every area of his life.
He loves school and doesn't mind homework at all. We developed a great routine during the year. We have a desk that was mine when I little that my mom got from a school that closed and gave to us for the boys that's our official homework spot. At homework time each night, K.C. would go to the desk, get his pencil ready and start his homework. It was great.
We also played games while learning spelling words and different sight words. I'll share more about those in another post.
It's time for the end of the year interview questions!
