PRINCETON — Nearly a month into kindergarten, 5-year-old Cameron Lawrence of Princeton says things are going well, and he’s smarter than when he started.
Last week, Cameron completed his 25th day at St. Louis Catholic School in Princeton. During his first 25 days at school, he’s learned how to write a bunch of lower case and upper case letters, including the letters L and O, noting that his teacher, Linda Carter, taught him to start at the top when making the letter O, and then go down and around, closing it up back at the top.
During a recent visit, he practiced writing the letter G. The upper case is like the letter C, but then you turn and go back with a straight line. For the lower case g, you make your long loop, make a straight line down, and then come around in a fish hook, Cameron said.
He’s also learning to write his numbers and to count. His numbers are definitely what he likes best, Cameron said.
Another good part of school is when his teacher reads to them. His favorite book is “Go Away Big Green Monster.” The funny part is at the end when it says “and don’t come back until I say so.” Now that’s a good book, Cameron said.
He also likes when he and his classmates get to use tape recorders and head phones to follow along with books that they can “read.” But you have to remember to put the tape in on Side A, Cameron said.
