At preschool Sarah and Joseph are practicing writing letters and numbers. Joseph adores writing, but for Sarah it's more of a chore that she has to get through before she can go paint. Today she showed me a sheet with lots of spaces for writing numbers. She had written only a few, then scribbled in the rest of the squares so she could be "finished" and told her teacher that she had written her numbers in Spanish. She must have thought her teacher wouldn't know "Spanish numbers", and therefore let it slide.
Here's Joseph's letters. He's working hard on them so he can earn a special writing workbook that some of the older kids use.
