T is excited, he is ready to go, backpack packed. Where did the time go?? I remember first grade, and now fourth grade GATE. We had the back to school BBQ and info night tonight. We had a glimpse of what is expected from him this year. All we can say is WOW, he is learning things we started in middle school (MAVO). And all the other fun things they do when they include math, there is the golf course where they have to calculate the "sum, mean, median and mode of all eighteen holes". There is the pizza walk, to learn everything from fractions to weight etc. And then there is this "Evaluate math expressions using parentheses" and "Use parentheses for order of operations". I will not even go to explain all the things he needs to know for language.
So we get up early in the morning and prepare for school, the first day of fourth grade!
