"He's very shy, and introverted."
"He's more comfortable when adults are not around."
"It's very hard to get him to do something when he has decided he doesn't want to do it."
My Little Man has always been a comfort zone guy. It takes him a while to warm up to new surroundings. A month and a half into preschool, these were still new surroundings to him.
"We have the whole rest of the school year to work with him...and I'm very optimistic...
I think two years in the same classroom, with the same teacher will do him worlds of good."
Did she just say "two years in the same classroom"???
What does she mean by that?
"He'll be coming back next year...won't he?"
I said..."No, he'll be in kindergarten"
To which she said..."When does he turn 5?"
OMG...My Little Man misses the kindergarten mark by 5 weeks!!! He won't be a year behind his sister...which I've thought he would be for the last. 4. years. He will be two years behind his sister.
Why had this never crossed my mind? Why did I not know the kindergarten cut off date? I filled out all the paper work for kindergarten, submitted it, and no one said a thing.
I know in the long run...this will be better for him. He's still very young...and I know boys develop slower than girls...but still.
There are now two years between The Little Man and Miss Peach...I'm still wrapping my head around that...
