Smart Boy

So I subbed for Avery's class today. I have been trying to stay out of there so it could be his own thing and he could get used to being away from me. Today went fine though, and he didn't hang all over me or do things he wasn't supposed to. I am subbing in there again tomorrow, so we will see what happens on Monday when I am not in there. He is very attached to me, so this is a test. :) Anyway, it was nice to see what goes on in there each day and to learn all the kids in his class, etc.

He gets out of school earlier than Sam since it is a pre-k class. So at the end of the day, after all the kids had left, we were cleaning up the room and getting it ready for tomorrow.

Avery said, "I never get in trouble, I ALWAYS do the right thing. " I thought that was funny, and of course, didn't believe him (he is a crazy kid after all), but then his other teacher (he has two) said , "Yep, we never have to worry about him. He is good." Probably because he has been at school since he was born and knows what to do. :) I am glad to know he does well though. I thought he would be my one to get in trouble. Hopefully that will continue.

Anyway, after that he was helping Ms. Shelley put the "center" cards (little cards with their names written on them, that they move during the day to show which center the kids go to)back in their right places. He picked up one of the cards and said, "Is this Carter's?" It was. He picked up another one and said, "Is this Mya?" It was! I couldn't believe it. I asked him how he knew (there was no way to distinguish them) he said he read it!!! I mean, I know he knows the letters and the sounds they make, but to read names like that, I couldn't believe it. How smart is he?! He explained how he read them, and he knew. Crazy! He picks things up so quickly. I guess I will start practicing reading with him now, instead of sticking with the letters and sounds.

Today was dress up as your favorite character day. Avery was Spider-man. Sam was Harry Potter, of course. Sam won the best costume in his class! He did look just like him, if I do say so myself. :) All of it was homemade, except his Harry Potter glasses. I just took different costume pieces and made them into Harry Potter. Anyway, he got to go to the office and get his picture taken and stuff. Pretty cool. He was excited. He did audition for the school play and made it. BUT they did not have enough people audition and will be having another audition after Fall Break, so he has to do it again. He loved it and did well. I can't wait to see him in it!

I guess that is it for now. Bye!
