All the interviews have gone well and the students and parents have gone away a little more reassured (I hope) about this next big step. That being said, I am always a bit nervous, anxious and excited for the first 'real' day of school and I am sure there are a few little bodies out there feeling exactly the same way. If the first day comes and your child has not slept the night before, will not eat breakfast, is complaining of stomach or headaches (and you know it is not illness) and/or they are emotional, trust that these are all normal signs for many kids transitioning into Kindergarten. Reassure them they can do it and that it is normal to feel worried. For the majority of kids, by the end of the first week they will feel completely confident going to school. It is crucial to ensure they attend school in those first few days even if they are expressing these complaints. Remind your child you are there to support them as are the teachers at school. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
