How many more years is school?

     — Kindergartener (on day two)


Me: "In three minutes, we are going to clean up so we can go to the bathroom before lunch."
Student: "I LOVE the bathroom AND lunch!"

I was inspired…

Panic Post

Open House is tomorrow.

The first day of school with kids is Tuesday - I have plans written for that day but not Wednesday or any of the other days.

I had a day.

And I will likely feel more inclined to detail it here after I finish this beer.

Sorry, geese, but school doesn’t start till next week.

Kindergartners’ Skills at School Entry: An Analysis of the ECLS-K 

Although most American children receive some pre-K child care and education, kindergarten still represents many children’s first exposure to formal schooling. Kindergarten supports children’s cognitive, social, and emotional skills, leading to rapid gains in knowledge during this first year of education. 
However, not all children enter kindergarten equally prepared to meet the challenges ahead of them. Researchers have found stark differences in kindergartners’ language, literacy, and math abilities as well as their social skills and behavioral approaches to learning. These areas are interdependent, and children who start kindergarten behind in math, reading, and attention-related skills risk being unable to catch up to their peers later on.
