Emma is her class Star of the Week this week and she couldn't be more thrilled! She has been having trouble settling into school and has been upset and often in tears most mornings going in to school. She seems to have turned a corner this week and has been going into school happily and without her comforter (she still takes a pink muslin around with her wherever we go and had also been taking it to school with her since she started). Her teachers recognised what a big step this is for Emma and awarded her the Star of the Week for "coming into school with a big smile and ready to learn".
We get to look after the class teddy for a week and have to take lots of photos and write about his adventures with us in the Star of the Week diary. Emma is over the moon! Walking home from school she turned to me and said excitedly, "This is the best day of my life!". I am so pleased the teachers chose to recognise what a big step Emma has taken this week. She is one of the youngest in her class and starting school has been a huge change for her. She wasn't really ready for school and it has been a hard adjustment for her. I am so pleased that she seems to finally be settling in. It has been breaking my heart leaving her at school each morning!
Well done on being the Star of the Week Emma.
Mummy and Daddy are so proud of you!
My gorgeous little Star of the Week. Love her so much!
