Is your kid starting kindergarten this fall? Me too! Isn’t it exciting?
This is my eldest son on his first day of kindergarten nearly five years ago.
I remember practically everything about that big first day. My son was nervous, excited, and proud – as was I.
I had high hopes for Boy Wonder’s academic career, and why shouldn’t I have? He was smart, inquisitive, and ready to learn.
What I didn’t know then were how dangerously flawed my expectations were. What followed were many painful lessons as my son and I clumsily navigated toward achieving academic and behavioral success.
As I registered BooBoo to begin kindergarten this fall, I realized just how much I’ve learned in the way of realistic academic expectations.
As you begin filling out those kindergarten registration packets and preparing for the excitement of this fall, I’d like to share a few personal lessons learned. While I know each of your experiences will be unique, I’ve prepared a bit of elementary school wisdom to bear in mind as your child embarks on the road to academia.
Have any elementary school wisdom to add?
