preschool 2014

Yesterday was Landon’s last day of preschool! I really have a hard time believing its already come and gone. We started preschool in January, mid year because of Landon’s birthday and age. Looking back it was such a great six months for him. He has grown so much, learned so much, and done so well with the transition.  Lets just compare first day and last day pictures can we? I cannot believe the change in him!

The first couple weeks were a challenge to say the least. Landon cried, and I felt awful for having to just hand him off to the teacher and run out the door to get to work. I know it was what was best, and eventually, he came around. He never got to a point that he was comfortable walking in on his own, but he learned his teachers names and felt comfortable being left with them. Landon struggles in the mornings as it is, I think he’s just not a morning kid and he takes a while to get up and get going. I’m a lot like that, so I can’t really blame him for having a hard time with that morning drop-off. Its a lot for a two year old to take in, especially when you just want to be held and take your time to wake up!

Landon’s teachers were Ms Lynn and Ms Kelly, and lucky for us, he will get to have them again in the fall for his first full year. Due to him being so young, he will repeat the 2-3 year old class. They were both great, and I am so thankful that he had such loving, sweet teachers to watch after him in the mornings.

After six quick months of preschool, I can see such a difference in Landon’s speech. It is light years better than it was in January, when he wasn’t talking very much at all. Now? He is easily using 5-6 word sentences, and picks up new words constantly. He has also learned the ABC’s, how to count 1-10 in English and Spanish, can recognize primary colors (and gets them right most of the time!), and is working on his shapes. I’m so proud of him and how quickly he picked up new things.

Being the only child in our family currently, I thought it was super important for Landon to be around other kids his age. He did really well learning to play with others, and I think the interaction and being in his class was so good for him socially.

Our first preschool experience went so well, and I’m so proud of Landon for how he adjusted to it all. But we are so glad its summer break!
