Jack and Jill

They have been working on nursery rhymes at school and we've been been reinforcing at home which has led to some pretty hilarious moments.  Xander is actually doing really well remembering all the little poems.  I've been really impressed. I have to look at the cheat sheets they send home from school half the time to remember. We got his quarterly progress report home from school and all in all in it was pretty positive. He needs reminders to do the things that he doesn't want to do and he is having a hard time with sharing- all pretty typical for a three year old in my opinion.  Those are the major reasons we sent him to preschool in the first place so that he could work on those skills.  I would have thought that with having a little brother to share with all the time would give him plenty of practice but I almost think it makes him less likely to want to share the rest of the time.  He is doing really well with shapes and patterns and has an impressive grasp of which letters of the alphabet his classmates names begin with, as well as being able to recognize all the letters of his name.  He can write an X but the other letters of his name are pretty hit or miss. So we'll just keep working on the positive things and on sharing, not bossing everyone else around and realizing that sometimes we have to do things we don't want to do!  Tough lessons for little boys to learn.

After having worked in a pre-K room in a daycare, I would say that he's a pretty typical 3 year old boy. As long as his teachers are aware of what his difficulties are and why, he should be fine :)
