. . .that on september 5th, this child will be starting kindergarten.
where has all the time gone?
tonight when i put him to bed, we talked a little bit about what kindergarten will be like. . .he's nervous because he doesn't know how to read yet. one of his friends does. i assured him he will learn to read in kindergarten. it's amazing how a simple question of capability and desire (he has no interest in learning to read at home, even though we read almost everyday), can fire up a hailstorm of shoudls and coulds.
should i hire someone to teach him to read?
should we start some fast-track phonics program?
cut out television?
nah. . .that's what kindergarten is for - relax. . .he will do great. my little boy is going to be one of the "big kids" now. . .
catch you soon -
