He was excited going out the door and coming back in. He described his teacher as "the best." I agree. She sent home a class newsletter with her phone number, email and their class website. After a year of pulling teeth to communicate it was beyond refreshing. One of their first assignments was to put 5 objects in a bag that describe who they are. Isaac picked a family picture (proud big brother), Legos, his wireless computer mouse, a geode and a picture he drew of a time machine. I was smiling all day picturing a whole room of 2nd graders presenting their "me bags." It's gonna be a good year.
