Back to school

In France the school year normally starts during the first week of September.

The little angel woke up early in the morning, all excited to go back to school.

When they arrived, they had to make up the bed for her afternoon nap.

This year the teacher has to handle a mixed of 4 and 5 years old class. She has her hands full I would say.

All the stationery required at school.

A focus on the slate. I had never used this at school but hubby said in France students use it since very young age.

This is how they use the slate in class. Everyone writes the answer on the slate so that teacher could easily knows who got it right and who got it wrong. Maybe in several years they will be using a tablet?

I wish her a very happy school year.


  1. I remember, i used chalk to write on my slate

  2. They started 'real' learning so young .. i tell you, over here, the real formal learning starts at 1st grade .. just play and no writing at all in the kindergarten years ..
