Here is her "report card". Her teacher said she's doing well and we can start with identifying letter sounds with her here at home (since she's doing so well there). She can count to 40 without help, and can identify all but 3 numbers between 1 and 20. We're very proud of her progress thus far in Pre-School and hope that she continues to love school as much as she does now!!
