During the last few weeks of April and the beginning of May, each child in Layla's class was assigned a day that they were the VIP. They each made a poster about themselves with pictures and things they like. Layla worked hard on her poster and had a lot of fun making it. I helped cut the pictures and paper but she did the decorating and told me where to put the pictures.
On their VIP day, parents were invited to come watch them and each lunch with them. Layla shared about her poster and then she got to sit in the teachers chair while her classmates said one compliment about her! Her teacher wrote down each compliment and sent that paper home. Malakai raised his hand and said he had one. Mrs. Muldoon let him share his compliment which was, "I like mac and cheese." Layla and her classmates just started laughing.
Eating lunch with Layla and her good buddy Jake. Even Malakai enjoyed eating with the big kindergartener's. She made sure to wear her Ariel dress on her VIP day because Jake gave that to her for her 5th birthday!
Layla got to wear several necklaces for the day because not only was she the VIP, she was also the special helper (line leader) for the day, and they celebrated her birthday as well.
