Also, each child "wrote" a poem for his/her mom. The teacher sat with each child and talked with him/her about his/her mom. The teacher began a sentence, and the child had to finish each sentence. Then, the teacher wrote down exactly what the child said.
Here's my poem from Cherish:
How sweet is that! I told you our family spells love T-I-M-E. She's my sweetie!
*I asked Cherish what she meant by "meat stuff." She said, "You know, mom, you like to eat legs." It dawned on me. She and I love chicken legs! When our family goes to KFC, we order a bucket of dark meat--legs and thighs--because our family likes dark meat the best. And when I bake chicken or turkey, she and I each get a leg. So, she's right. My favorite "meat" to eat is chicken legs! (OK, now my mouth is watering....)
And, I will add: I love to eat other legs as well...my children's pudgy little legs!!!!! J Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! Oh, and I love the full belly laughter that accompanies the "eating" of those little legs!
