It was a tough decision, but we decided to put Joshua in Kindergarten this year. Looking at the statistics for 1st grade this year, many of the kids are getting ready to have their 7th birthday soon, and he just turned 6. I'd like to break him in slowly to mainstream society. Looking at the curriculum for this year's class, I think he's going to love Kindergarten. We talk about how last year was practice for this year. We refrain from using the word "repeat" since there is a negative stigma to it. Last year we did Kindergarten at home and this year he gets to do it with friends at school. Daniel was loving the cubbies with all the toys and legos in them. He wants to go to Kindergarten so badly.
All of the kids loved the reading corner. Daniel found Chicka Chicka, Boom Boom - a favorite book around our house.
