Teach Conference

Last week Keith and met with Miss Lydia, Dylan and Carter's teacher, for a conference.  We haven't had one since they were in the infant two room so it was fun to hear how they are doing in toddlers.  At this age they have a series of tests they do to see what they can/can't do for their age group.  Things like stacking blocks, drinking from cup, scribbling, language, etc.  There were a handful of categories, but she didn't give us the sheet, so I don't remember all of them.  But a few things:

  • She said they LOVE story/song time and cry when they have to change activities if they are having a lot of fun
  • They keep them busy since they are always climbing on everything
  • They don't know colors yet (still a little young), but she said most kids will usually get stuck on one color and think everything is yellow or everything is green, so that should be entertaining
  • They are doing much better with biting and pulling hair, but now they are pushing.  She said now they are at the age where they start to realize consequences to their actions, like pushing somebody makes their friend "sad" and she said they are starting to realize if they pull somebodies hair it hurts them and they are realizing that is not a good thing. 
  • I'm always a little worried since they still don't say a lot, but she concerned at all and thought they were in range with most kids and said around two is when most kids start to say a lot
Other than that, they seemed to be on track with everything.
