school projects

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 3:15 PM
Yesterday was Makenna's 1st grade open house. Kinda boring and definitely not what I remember my elementary open houses being like. It literally took us all of 5 minutes to find the classroom and meet her teachers (she was one of the "lucky" students so she ended up in the big classroom with 32 kids so there are two teachers), and find her desk.
One thing Makenna is excited for is that she actually has her own desk! In Kindergarten they sat at tables with 4 kids to a table. Now - well now she's a "big girl" with a real desk that has a cubby area space for books and such!


While talking to one of the teachers I found out they would have some projects through out the year which is nice but that pretty much means me or daddy will be doing these.
She asked me if I have a computer because they will be asking some students to do a multimedia presentation at some point and it would be great if we could participate. Awesome, not even the 1st day of school and I need to figure this out!

Now don't get me wrong I know my way around a computer, html, css, the whole shebang but give me something like Adobe and I'm clueless. I guess I just haven't given myself time to learn it and definitely have a lack of motivation to learn it.

This being said I am definitely going to have to buy some things if we will for sure help out in the classroom. I looked into some productivity software which looks like it can be helpful so I might go with that as well.
My adventure with Adobe will definitely have to have it's own post I'm sure of it.

Makenna's highlight was going to say hi to Mrs. V her Kindergarten teacher and the Miss B. the teacher next door to her. Those two teachers are about the same age (early 20's) so they always scheduled the classrooms to have reading time and other activities with each other. Not judging the new teachers but I am going to miss Mrs. V (never really knew Miss B) a lot. She was really amazing at her job.

My big girl is all ready for 1st grade.. officially the start of my downward spiral into sadness because I'm sure by tomorrow she will be graduating and I'll be an old hag :(( *insert tears here*

I'm terrified to send my little girl to school! She's not old enough yet and we have a lot of at home learning to do before then, but it's looming. I'm glad your little girl was able to see her old teacher(s), that was always my favorite part of returning to school in the fall. Good luck in the upcoming year with all the projects and parent participation!
