First day of school is complete. No one was injured. No one has a complex. Everyone still likes each other!
We started the first day with a meal that Milo planned himself. He said, “I want oatmeal, honey, and eggs!” A very hearty breakfast for my oldest’s first day in kindergarten. School went a lot quicker than I thought. He picked up on everything pretty quick.
Things that I learned from day one:
- We will always do Math first thing in the morning. When he’s tired is not the best time to try to do that. Looks like I have a literary boy instead of a math genius, at this point.
- Snacks are mandatory after two subjects. I could tell after two subjects he was beginning to get bored. It was time for a grape break, which just happened to correspond to the shapes and colors we were learning.
3. The wooden desk was definitely worth the money. When it comes time to doing the offline work from K12, it can’t be beat!
In summary, first day of schooling at home, I can already see that this was a good decision. If he were in a class full of 29+ children, I don’t think he would have been able to just pour through the subjects the way he was today. He did so well. I was really proud of him.
