We would like to introduce you to Avery, she is a 4 yr old student. She is in her second year of Casa. Last night she asked if she can help prep for dinner. Of course Mom happily accepted her offer to help. She proceeded to tell her Mom that she was very good at cutting because she works on that in her classroom. Then continued to tell her how amazing she is at grating cheese. To her Mom’s surprise she was right! She spent 25 focused minutes on the task at hand. When she completed her ‘work’, she told her Mom she wasn’t finished. She insisted that she had to clean the mess that she created. She brought everything over to the sink and washed everything by hand with soap and water. When she was done, she said “now I’m all done”.
What a great practical life lesson!
