Following Up & In the Works…

I know I haven’t posted in several days, but there’s good reason! Here’s a follow up on Kindergarten, and some awesome news about what’s coming up.

Kindergarten Follow-Up

Connor’s teacher and I have worked out a system where she meets us at the door and walks him to kindergarten, while I scoot away as discreetly as possible. I always give him his hugs and kisses before we get to the building, so he doesn’t feel like I’m not saying I love him or goodbye. So far, its working like a charm! He still gripes about not wanting to go to school while we’re on our way there, so it’s not the optimum situation yet, but at least we aren’t having any meltdowns.

Awesome News

I’ve been asked to review an educational tool aimed at finding learning problems in young children and eliminating them. The program involves a once-a-week 1 hour lesson, then the rest of the weeks’ lessons are 20 minutes long. It takes 12-18 months to complete the program, depending on how quickly you work with your child. I’ll be starting on this program on Sunday, and I can’t wait to see how Connor does. I’ll be posting about the first lesson on Sunday night, and will do follow up posts every two weeks or so. Oh – there’s one more thing…I get to give one lucky person a membership to the program valued at $600! More details on the giveaway to come.

  1. Congratulations!! That’s great news on all parts of your updates!! Is there a reason that your son doesn’t want to go to school? Last year when my daughter went into Kindergarten she all of a sudden didn’t want to go, we pryed, and pryed but really had no success in finding out the problem. Then randomly she told us that one of the other little girls in another class was insisting that she needed to play with her with no jacket. Our daughter said that she wanted to be the little girls friend so that is why she was taking her jacket off and she was cold….so going to school she felt that she was facing that obsticle. That is the reason that she didn’t want to go to school. There’s always a reason…..we just need to figure it out!! :)

      He’s going through an “I want to be with mamma” phase that started when his little brother was born. Probably another reason is that he was bussed to preschool, but I bring him to and from kindergarten. Good news though, we just found out that he is eligible for free busing to and from school, and the principal is going to see if it can even be to the end of our driveway! The principal, his teachers and I all think this could be the key to helping him learn how to transition well.

  2. Yay! Yay! and Yay! Connor’s teacher sounds awesome. I am glad you were able to work out something. Enjoy the learning program. My kids are probably too old for it but it sounds like great bonding as well as educational. Congrats on writing. Sounds like you are going to be really busy.
