2nd Grade: Before and After

Today is Jonathan's last day of Second Grade. I took a picture of him on the first day of school and on the last day.

When I found the picture from September, I laughed. He's wearing the same shirt!

Here he is on the 1st day of school.

Here he is this morning before school.

Here is another picture of him after he grabbed his book. Everyday (starting after birthday in April) Jonathan takes a book from the "Diary of the Wimpy Kid" series to school. He reads on the bus and he reads when he has extra time in class. I cannot tell you how many times he has read these books. He keeps reading them over and over.

He has come a long way this year! At the beginning of the year, he told me he loved math and didn't like reading "so much". Now, I can hardly get his head out of a book. It's such a joy to see him love reading.

You should be very proud of Jonathan. He is such a good kid when I sub in his class. He's helpful, kind, happy and curious. And look how much he's grown! Great kid!! -Cathy

Where does the time go? It goes so fast, doesn't it? Gabe is enjoying reading but I look forward to the day when he is reading for pleasure instead of me telling him to read. Way to go, Jonathan!

I can't believe how much more grown-up he looks. In the first picture he has such a baby face and now he is just SO GROWN-UP!!!! It's amazing!!!! I think it is so wonderful how much he enjoys reading now!!!!
