My little boy is off on his second week of Kindergarten. Hard to believe! He’s really loving it.
Andrew’s young heart thrives on calendars and schedules and charts. He starts each day looking at the calendar and figuring out what day it is and how many days until some event in the future. Now that we have the school’s hot lunch schedule hanging on the refrigerator, we have a new topic to consider: hot or cold lunch today? [I could re-phrase that as processed, trans-fat-laden, sugar-filled hot lunch vs. organic, locally produced, nutrient-rich homemade lunch, but I won't. That's a topic for a different post.]
Andrew brought home some info on Friday describing the different classes that they have each day. I’d also received a handout describing the kindergarten class schedule. So Saturday morning, I took a few minutes and typed up a weekly schedule for my boy. So on any given morning he can look and see what special classes he has scheduled that day. And at any time of the day, I can glance at the schedule to see what he’s up to.
Here’s a version in PDF if you’d like a copy for yourself! This week he has four days of school, and next week, we’ll be up to five. So far, so good:)
