Ohhh another observation day for Meggie.
This one was called 'The mysteries of my belly button' and was about babies and where they come from (starting 8 weeks after conception- we are still in Grade 2!) and how important mummy's are and how your mummy carried you around in her tummy for all that time as you got bigger and bigger and heavier and heavier. The teacher used classroom objects to represent the weight of the fetus at each stage and it was great watching the kids reactions. When he got to the end and it was 'And then you were as heavy as a pianica AND a tape dispenser and your mummy was walking around like this all day and all night' and one boy piped up 'she should have just used a school bag- I carry my pianica like that and it's not heavy at all!' ohhhh so sweet.
Then we sang sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana by SMAP. I love this song and it was great having the kids sing it. Ohhhhh.... I love observation day.
I love Meg's school.
I love Meg's class.
I love Meg's teacher.
I am gonna be bawling my eyes out come April when we have a new class and new teacher....
