Carter: Pre-K

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Since we moved to a different school district we decided to switch Carter from his Montessori school to a regular preschool this year.  We figured this way he'll get to know some kids in our district before Kindergarten and feel comfortable in a more traditional school atmosphere.

His teacher came to meet us at our house 2 weeks ago.  She did an assessment and took his picture and gave him homework (which he loved!)  Then last week we went to an Open House to see his classroom and was that ever overwhelming for him.  He was deer-in-the-headlights.  There were lots of kids and parents and siblings.  A group of boys were playing and I tried to get him to play but he shook his head adamantly- NO!  

Then on Sunday night we were talking about school the next day and he got scared.  He voiced that he was afraid because he doesn't know anyone.  So Monday morning we got his things all ready, we took his pictures at home and then drove to school.  And as we got out of the car we heard a little boy in his class crying because he didn't want to go.  We tried to help him come in and befriend him.  And then Carter declared, I'm not nervous at all!  How things changed in a few minutes!

We went into his classroom and he happily hugged and kissed me and Reid and said "See ya in the car line!"  I was so impressed!  We've come a long way since our daycare drop offs!




In the car line his teacher said he had a great day and he hopped in the car and said "I wasn't scared at all!"  Then later said, "It was pretty cool.  I could stay there all day."  He was so excited to show me his homework and is already looking forward to going tomorrow!
