Just before school ended, Tatum's class put on the cutest program. They sang songs and shared stories they had written and his teacher put together a slide show. It made me so proud to see all that he has learned and accomplished this year in Kindergarten.
They all held up signs showing how many teeth they lost this year. Poor Tatum still hasn't lost a tooth and sure feels left out!
Mrs. Reiber had these shirts made for all of the kids. She had each kid draw a picture of themselves and write their name, then she made shirts out of it...so cute! After the program we went back to the classroom where each kid had a display of their work from the year.
The end of the year project was to put together an ABC book. Each child had to decide what their book would be about and (with the help of their mom's) create an ABC book. Here is Tatum's book.
I am so in love with this book!! Tatum drew all of the pictures and wrote all of the words, I just scanned them, cropped them and put them together in Photoshop. I am so glad that I have this adorable keepsake from Tatum's kindergarten year. I definitely will be doing this for each of my kids. Here are some of my favorite pages.
Tatum and his wonderful teacher...Mrs. Reiber.
I got so sad on the last day of school, I actually cried as I gave his teacher a hug and drove off! This year was so wonderful that I was anticipating the last day of school to be the worst day! Tatum made so many friends, learned how to read well above his level and seriously loved every single day of school. I can't believe he is a 1st grader now! I am such a proud parent!
