First Grade

We started first grade today. It took us two hours to finish (with a few interruptions) and by the end Libby said she wished there was more to do. Of course, the beginning of any curriculum is review so she was quite disappointed that it wasn't hard. I told her it would get a little harder as we go, but that they try to step you through the process so you don't get frustrated. She said she was frustrated that it wasn't hard enough. Gotta love her!

Our math activity for the day was to play with the shape blocks. I expected her to look at me and ask what she was supposed to do with them. No, not Libby, she opened the jar and within two minutes had made a giraffe...and then a coconut tree for the giraffe to eat from. She must have played with these at preschool or something. I was utterly impressed at her imagination and how she just took off with the project. Next she made a cat and herself (sitting indian style) next to the cat eating a coconut. I didn't take a picture of that because I was too busy trying not to giggle as she went off on a tangent about how she wasn't sure how she was 6-years old because then she would be old enough to use a knife to open the coconut to get the milk out of it. Wow! So much fun.
