Basically it’s just a reason for moms to dump off their kids so they can go run errands. This is not my opinion, this is what one of the dads at school today told me. I don’t know what to think about that. I hope that’s not true.
From what I saw, it’s very small activities that they repeat until the kids start to get it. My boys had to have a birthday to fell into the correct months in order to just qualify for this school. Then they had to have registration paid before today and they needed a backpack (I’m not even kidding) with the school supplies that were on our packet list. The teacher and teacher helpers? (Are they teaching assistants at this level?), anyway they took a big tape label thing and wrote each of my boys’ names on their backpacks and put them in their own cubbie. I thought it was a locker but you are supposed to call it a cubbie.
Looked like a locker to me.
Then we all sat in a circle and introduced ourselves. Every single kid wanted to sit or be near my boys.
Just great, we are already a circus show Lol Day 1!
After introductions we got to hear about what they will be doing tomorrow. It sounds fun. It’s color day. They throw a bunch of soft color blocks in the middle of the floor and the kids learn to figure out what color is what. Then they make it into a game by telling the kids to put the block into the right color bin. WEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Lol Sounds like a hoot!
What’s really going to happen is my boys are going to see the blocks, charge in like bulls, knocking everyone out-of-the-way and lay on top of all of the blocks. I promise you this color day is going to turn into bloody nose day fast. I just did colored socks in the living room and some empty Amazon boxes to teach them how to do it. So far all they have done is kicked the socks around and sit in the boxes Lol
Good luck Miss Teacher.
It really is all about teaching them the very basics of things and to help them get socialized. Okay. So we are in school now and tomorrow I’m dropping them off.
It did go well. Everyone seems nice and my boys were shy. I hope they both know that I’m coming back to pick them up tomorrow. I have a feeling Alex is going to flip out.
Pray for us tomorrow morning guys Lol
