Nathan's Preschool Parent Teacher Conference - 2/2/09

Nathan's Preschool was closed on Monday 2/2 due to Parent Teacher Conferences being held. I wasn't worried about him as I knew he had been doing great there. We know his teacher really well (Miss Rebecca). She was actually at the Super Bowl party on Sunday, and Nathan enjoyed getting to spend some one-on-one time with her!!

Here are the comments she had written for him:

*Takes care of own sleeping, eating and toileting needs (working on dressing for outside)
*Moves with purpose and coordination - uses the lily pads on the climber with little assistance
*Fine motor control - traces objects

*Waits for his turn
