Samantha is really sad to be out of school because she loves it so much. I'm glad she has the opportunity to go to school.
At the end of the song the kids were singing it said go to sleep. I thought it was cute how they all struck this sleeping pose and then all through the introduction to the next song the kids sat here pretending to be asleep. They held this pose for about 2 minutes without even moving. Funny.
Throughout the program the teachers would get up and share funny things that happened during this kindergarten year. This note was given to Samantha's teacher Miss Miller. I thought it was funny and want to share it. She said that when the teachers were having the kids practice their graduation program, one day the teachers got choked up and cried a little because they were sad to have their little kindergarteners moving on and out of their classes. Later, a little girl came up and handed Miss Miller this note:
Dot kriy ubaoot me leeveeg cinagartin. Al sil see you in the hol waas and I dot wont to leev to but we al haf to maak our uon waaz but I sil love you.
To Miss Miller
This picture is after Samantha had her name read and got her certificate. I think the kids look so cute in their little graduation hats!
After the program was finished we went to Samantha's classroom for a little presentation from the teacher and for the kids to collect all the rest of their stuff. Samantha is really proud of this picture that she painted in art class.
This is Samantha with her teacher, Miss Miller.
And finally, the graduation certificate! :)
We have a CD set by Steve James of good kids songs that help teach them important principles. They are really fun songs and the school system has incorporated these songs into a lot of their programs. Samantha is here on my soundless video singing The Stranger Song. If you want to listen to how it sounds (it's on of our favorites) click here http://www.somethinggoodinc.com/ and then go to Sample Songs and listen to The Stranger Song. We also really like The Friendship Song, I Like Being Me, and Buckle Up - among others. :)
