So I'm in Tennessee, trying to make a little dent in some of my mother's things. The easy part, clothing, was concluded yesterday. Now I'm sifting through boxes that include not only my mother's collection of photographs and memories, but also my own childhood relics. I was especially delighted by the highlights from my nursery school teacher's evaluation of my development circa 1985, I would suppose:
Outdoors: not locked into any one group or game, different things on diferent days.
Indoors: really does absolutely everything - housekeeping/dressups/art/playdoh/sand room (esp)
Peers: Plays well with quite a few different children. Especially attached to S. R. and C. very different and she plays differently with each one. There are a few children she ignores completely. Tries to solve conflicts herself - begins with words - may then cry or ask for adult assistance; feelings may be hurt.
Adults: Really comfortable with adults and will seek them out, volunteer info. Ocasionally seeks out for companionship but not cling on.
Group: Very enthusiastic/loves stories (complains if books don't qualify as stories. Likes songs, dramatizing and participates etc but can share floor.
Style: Some surprisngly good coping skills (figuring out way to get her favoritemat) plays well in group but may be a little on the fringe...and then can suddenly assume leader role. Probably best with one or two at a time. Structures time well indoors, better than outdoors.
Frankly, I think this could still pretty much describe me.
