This week marks the halfway point of my pregnancy. Alhamdulillah, I had a visit with my midwife this week and all is well. Isa accompanies me to my appointments. Her office is in her home and she keeps a box of toys for children to occupy themselves with.
After my appointment, we headed to the park for a toddler out and about program. We enjoyed the birds and just being outside. outside.
Today, Isa had his second Sprouts class and was a little more open to the other children and the classroom in general. He practiced ironing this session which he sees his father doing more than me.
We also started a caterpillar craft project which we will complete next session, insha Allah.
I also wanted to share a picture of the kindergarten classroom which I found to be so much different than a traditional kindergarten classroom.
Our group discussion was about the Waldorf reading philosophy. They teach writing before reading which begins in first grade. We flipped through journals that the first graders had made with drawings and word phrases. They rely heavily on learning through spoken language with lots of storytelling in the early years. It was a very interesting class.
