He’s still bouncy; nope, haven’t figured that one out yet. I talked to his mom and she was puzzled. Apparently he’s pretty calm at home, like he used to be in class. She said, “He really does love school, though” and I told her, “yup, he bounces in with joy each morning!” She laughed. I’m glad I’ve been able to be so positive with her (she knows how much I adore her son), so she isn’t defensive when I call.
Even though he is still bouncing, he is actually learning something. The other day I noticed he was shouting out lots of letter names during our morning meeting letter practice, so I assessed him later. To my delight, I discovered he knows more than half of the 52 lower- and upper-case letters. I don’t think he did just a few weeks ago; perhaps the bouncing actually helps him learn?
