I sure hope taping is a skill they mark you on

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

I wrote about how the daycare teachers said that cutting was an important skill once the kids got to school and Reid likes to cut things well enough. She brings little pieces of paper home most nights as proof of her practicing. Reid will cut yarn, too, and we have more than a few left over balls ;+). Sometimes she even glues the yarn and bits of things to paper.

Taping, though, is Reid’s passion. With a container full of brightly-coloured feathers with which to decorate a Mardi Gras mask at the Children’s Museum, Reid carefully pulled off piece after piece of tape and applied them to the mask blank. Just before we left, Reid chose 2 feathers and taped them over top of some of the tape.

Do you suppose that the teachers in kindergarten will assess her taping skills? If they don’t, I’m going to have to get her working on math or reading.
