Darla's Mom

Photos and musings as I raise this kid

And, she is now in Kindergarten

Darla can write, knows all her letters and numbers, and is reading basic books aloud and unassisted. She is a great problem solver and creative thinker and I’m pretty sure she is smarter than I am. She is not afraid to let me know that she thinks she is smarter.

We made the long walk out of our Gaye, across the street and down 100 yards or so to her school where she found dead her name tag and sat in the atrium.

Darla packed her own midmorning snack woth juice, yoghurt and strawberries.

This afternoon the local park service will pick her up and take her to theor afterschool program. I plan on hanging around to make sure this goes smoothly.

She should have about 20 minutes of homework each night.

I’ve discovered a perk to her charter school : no classroom supply buying. She has to have crayons, glue and a dry-erase marker for home and we already have that.

Her class has 4 computers, a smart board and is equipped with technology that my Mom would have loved. The teacher can sit at her desk and control the overhead projector, and she can text each or all of the student families. This is a far cry from chalk and ditto papers – but as long as she learns the basics I don’t care how the information is imparted.
