Ok, y’all. Let’s talk about school. While some kids head into kindergarten and almost seamlessly find their groove- other kids have a bit of a rough transition from preschool to elementary school. Mine seem to be the latter. Silas is all caught up at this point, but Scout is still having a hard time getting used to the challenging curriculum. Shes a little bit behind, but she’s sounding out words, learning her math, and working really hard. She practices on @abcmouse and @prodigy_math_game a few times a week and has homework sent home every night, as well. It just hasn’t all “clicked” yet. Luckily, she has a teacher who loves her and keeps me updated on what needs focus and improvement.
So, I want to hear from you guys: - Do your kids love school? - Did they have a hard time transitioning to elementary school? - When was your child fluently reading? - Have they dealt with bullies yet? *Honestly- I know that as long as my kids are good listeners who are loving and caring- the rest will follow. If I had to choose: I would rather them be the most empathetic, compassionate kids in class, rather than the smartest. But at the same time- no parent wants to see their child struggle.
