Boy, born 2012
Able is a cute little boy who loves to laugh and play games with balls. Able’s caretakers say that he is strong and that he has a lovely smile. Able can walk independently and he has strong imitating abilities. He can dance to the song of ‘Do Re Me’ following the teacher and can take initiative to help his teacher put garbage in the correct place. Abel also helps the other children to put on shoes. Able is always abiding the rules. If there are children who leave their seats in class, Able takes them back to their seats to sit well, and then seats himself. One time in class, Able’s teacher was singing and doing roll call, and another child in class was not concentrating or sitting well … Able went to him and strictly asked him to sit well.
Able can go up and down stairs, throw a ball, and ride a tricycle. Every morning, Able carefully comes down the stairs for exercise. Sometimes he is far behind the teacher. The teacher will squat down, spread her arms, and give a come here sign. Able will then happily run to the teacher’s open arms. Able can doodle with a pen and can put a missing piece of a toy back together.
