The best preschool ever!

Anna only has one more week of preschool. She's ready to be done with the whole getting-up-early routine (so is her Mama!), but she has had a blast and has learned an insane amount! Her teacher is truly gifted & Anna loves her. We're hoping she keeps doing it so Jacob can go when he's four!
She had her program Tuesday and I think all the parents were shocked just exactly how our little four- and five-year-olds know! They recited poems and songs about mountains, oceans, continents. They showed us rays and line segments. They named 3-D shapes & prisms (hexagonal prism, anyone?). It was so fun. And how she can read!! She's probably reading first, if not second, grade level books! I thought at first that she wasn't comprehending it, but she does. I'm just so impressed with her! I told Mom that I think the reason the teacher is able to teach them so much is that she honestly believes they CAN learn all this. Most people think "oh that's too complicated to teach a 4 year old!" But they're little sponges & think learning is fun & exciting!
Anyway, here is a picture of her little class.
