Sounds like Maya's teacher has a lot of neat ideas! I might have to steal some of them sometime. ^.^ Maya does seem to be ahead of the game! But it will be good for her to be in the class with other kids and learning about what school is like :)

Seems like the curriculum is pretty advanced for kindergarten, but then again, that's the direction kindergartens are moving these days.

Here's another idea I forgot to mention: Estimation Jar. A small jar will be sent home with a different child each Friday. The child will fill it with a secret number of something (say, 13 buttons). The other students try to guess the number on Monday by using estimation methods. I wonder how often the child who knows the number blurts it out though! :-)

oooh another good idea! I suppose Miss Mac will have to work with the kids not to blurt out the answer, hehe!
