You would think that Ren might be full of himself because of his English-speaking status (he's easily one of our favorites, and he knows it) but Ren is also one of the sweetest kids I've ever met. Because Ren is so advanced, he always has a million tokens at the end of the week. Last Saturday, during store, he decided to spend his tokens on a bracelet that is clearly meant for a girl. Laura started making fun of him for picking it, because it was a girl bracelet and was not made for a boy. Ren turned around and held it out and said with a slight shake of his head: "I bought it for you!"
Today in class, I had my kids make cheetahs out of construction paper. As I was instructing the kids (step-by-step) on how to draw a cheetah face, I looked over at Ren who had already drawn his cat head and proceeded to draw this (and then make sure it was clearly labeled).
I told you he was a smart cookie.
