Onwards to the yellow class

10 June , 2011

This is a photo of Nicola’s old class of last week – I’ll see if I can get a new one to put up for where she is now.

That’s right, Nicola has been moved up to the next class – the advanced toddler class. The kids usually only move there after their second birthday, which is still about 6 months away for my mouse! they say that her talking and vocabulary is at a point where she should really move on (and she really doesn’t give any of the other kids in the red class a chance to get a word in!) and she’ll get much more stimulation in the yellow class. (The principal tells me that Nicola often walks into her office during the day to come tell her some or another story with lots of hand gestures, when sheโ€™s done she just wanders out again after she says byebye and waves). ๐Ÿ˜†

So far so good, she seems to be adjusting to the yellow class quite easily. The teacher says she’s doing well and she was quite surprised to find out that Nicola can already sort of feed herself if she has to (look she still tips most of it out on the floor and herself, but she’s getting there). They recommend that we wait with potty training till Spring, and I agree – but I’m not sure that Nicola does. She does NOT want to wear nappies anymore. This is a problem, and ends in many tantrums and tears and wrestling matches.

And you might also find this a little entertaining:

  1. WOOOHOO go Nicola!!!

  2. Oh she is doing well. I say train if she wants to.

  3. Laura, ๐Ÿ˜€

    cat, I’ve been thinking about it – I also don’t want to discourage her if she’s ready.

  4. She’s such a clever girl!

  5. Well, she’s always been a clever girl. Yay for the yellow class and now the red kids may get some talking time in too ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Angel, ๐Ÿ˜€

    Marcia, my thoughts exactly! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. […] So this is the beginning on Nicolaโ€™s second week in the Yellow class. […]

  9. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€
