E cosi anche Luisa ha iniziato la scuola la settimana scorsa!ed ecco alcuni”suoi”pensieri.And now,also Louise has started school.Here are some of “her”thoughts
1/ How did you (Olivia and Tony) prepare Louise for school? Come avete preparato Luisa per la scuola?
We didn’t do much preparation really, Louise was ready and eager to go to pre-school. For a couple of months, she had been saying that she is a big girl and that she wants to go to school just like her sister. Before her first day, we had bought a school bag and a lunch box together and she was very proud to wear them on her first day!
Non abbiamo veramente fatto niente-Luisa era pronta e contenta di andare a scuola.Qualche giorno prima le abbiamo comprato uno zaino e una scatola per portare il suo pranzo,ed era orgogliosa di poterlo usare!
2/ How did Louise react when you told her she had to go to school? Did she like the idea?
Come ha reagito Luisa,quando ha saputo che doveva andare a scuola?
Oh yes! On the morning of her first day, when I told her we had to get ready to go to school, she just ran to her bedroom to get dressed. She was asking to wear a dress though, which I hadn’t really planned because of the Irish weather…
il primo giorno,era tutta emozionata contenta,ed e’andata subito nella sua camera a vestirsi….ma voleva mettersi un vestito,…il quale non era appropriato,dato il tempo…
3/ Did Valentina give her some tips?
Valentina Le ha dato qualche suggerimento?
Absolutely! Valentina had been telling her about school for months! She also advised her sister not to scream if she was not happy about something, otherwise she would scare the other kids:-))
Certo!le ha raccontato della scuola da mesi,e le ha anche raccomandato di non gridare,avrebbe spaventato gli altri bambini!
4/ What where her thoughts, the day before, and in the morning?
Quali erano i suoi pensieri?Penso che era molto eccitata,non vedeva l’orda di fare come la sorella grande
I think she was very excited and looking forward to it. She really wanted to do as her sister.
5/ Does she like going to school? Has she met new friends?
Le piace andare a scuola?ha incontrato nuovi amici?
Luisa era molto entusiasta i primi due giorni,pou si e’cominciata a stancare;e’un bel cambiamento per lei,una mattinata piena con bambini e insegnanti che non conosceva,in un posto nuovo e in piu’tutto in inglese!!Il terzo giorno ,era contenta di tor are a casa,e il quarto mi ha chiesto di stare un po’piu ‘con lei.Penso che e’stato un buon metodo di iniziare la scuola molto morbido.Non ha mai pianto,come e’sucesso per alcuni bimbi e gli insegnanti non hanno mai chiamato,per riprenderla prima.
C’e’una bimba chiama Sienna la quale credo che diventera’sua amica,ma e’ancora presto per giocare insieme,stanno solo vicino!So che lee’piaciuto la lezione di musica,dipingere cantare,e si e’gia’fatta riconoscere dagli insegnanti per il suo volere sempre fare dei puzzle!
Louise was very enthusiastic on her first 2 days, then, I think she started to get a bit tired, that was a big change for her, a full morning with kids and teachers she does not know in a new place and all that in English!! The third day, she was happy to go back home and on her fourth morning, she asked me to stay a bit longer with her. but all in all, I believe this was a very smooth introduction to school. She never cried and the teachers did not call me to come back earlier, which I know has happened for some children.
There is a little girl named Sienna who might become a friend later, but children are still very young and are not yet playing together but rather next to each other:-)
I know that she has enjoyed painting, playing music and singing songs and she has already made her teachers mad with her love for jigsaws, asking them to do it again and again!
