Jacob finished Kindergarten last week. His report card came back and he’s pretty much on track: reading is improving, writing, numerical skills, etc. He just needs to practice more writing, reading and playing over the summer (really, they said he should play with others during the break to prepare for first grade!). He’s made a lot of progress with his physical development and got high marks in swimming especially.
He had his very own graduation as well and Bi and I went together. Each class did a different song/dance performance and Jacob’s class did a dance to ‘The Cha-Cha Slide’. Video below if you’d like to watch!
They even played the ‘Pomp and Cirucmstance’ song and gave each kid their own paper graduation cap. Jacob’s came undone and fell over his eyes as he crossed the stage – which got a reaction from the audience. See video of that here:
Below are Jacob’s diploma and his ‘Character in Action’ certificate – better than any certificate my university gives out to students!
I also took these two shots of Jacob getting on his bus (Bus number 6, as he always calls it) to go to Kindergarten for the last time. A big day, and one we’ll never have back. But, he’s on to first grade and happy for it!
