Today I went to pick up Mia's evaluation. As she started in March, this is the first evaluation I get, so it is the firts time that somebody (besides the pediatrician) evaluates her.

And here is her teacher’s written comment:
This school year has been so much fun and adventure for our Camila, who managed to integrate to our school’s family very easily. At the beginning she was a bit shy, but now she is very happy and shows spontaneously her emotions. She likes to cooperate, and normally respects the classroom rules. Enjoys to participate very actively in the school’s activities (in and out of the classroom), especially painting, coloring, play in the construction center and make puzzles.

She shows proper gross motor skills, which allows her to climb and run easily, even though sometimes she doesn’t have the adequate coordination.

It will be really good for Camila to expose her during the summer to materials of different textures. It will also be good for her to offer her learning activities that she enjoys like dramatized stories, sing along, poems, interactive stories, to help her with her language development.

Congratulations for accomplish the objectives proposed in our classroom, we really enjoyed being with you. Happy Summer!

CAMILA: MOMMY AND DADDY ARE VERY HAPPY TO HAVE YOU IN SCHOOL BECAUSE YOU HAVE GROWN SO MUCH AND LEARNED SO MUCH IN THE LITTLE TIME YOU HAVE BEEN THERE. YOU ARE HAPPIER AND SO MUCH FUN. EVERYBODY IN SCHOOL LOVES YOU VERY MUCH, EVEN THOSE THAT ARE NOT EVEN YOUR TEACHERS, AND ALL THE KIDS TOO. WAY TO GO!!
