Today Noah brought home his first school craft that he completed... a necklace for Halloween.
Noah is still attending Community Montessori School, this is his second year. Last year he began attending in September, with a nanny/aide. He would go daily from 10:30-12:00. We then slowly increased the time through the fall so that by January he was attending 9:00 - 12:00. The first hour, he was going to school on his own, then the nanny would arrive around 10:00ish and stay with him until 12:00.
Through the Spring, we began to have the nanny go less and less, until the last month of school he was attending completely on his own!
This year, Noah began school on September 1, going completely solo like the rest of his peers :-) He is attending from 9:00-12:00 daily, and is doing fantastic! It takes a lot of work as far as keeping in contact with the director and the teachers, sharing what Noah is currently working on at home (especially regarding speech) so that they can reinforce it at school, but it is all worth while!
I am so proud of my little man! Here is a photo of his first independent art project, (with a little help from Miss Carol)!
