After the teacher gave her schpiel about what happens in a Pre-Kindergarten class, parents had the opportunity to ask questions. That is when my judgeiness came out...just a bit.

Everything’s a challenge. Better yet, create your own activities or build your own puzzles to make him prove to you that he's starting to figure things out. No teacher is a miracle worker and we need to do better. Whew, glad I got that off my chest.
