Lauri Goes to School

Wednesday, 2 Jan 2008: First Day
We went to her class. Gave Lauri to her teacher. I said bye bye, Lauri bye bye me back. The teacher closed the door. That’s it. Everything went smoothly. After sometimes, I saw her talking to her class mate and didn’t even miss me at all. It seems that she likes school after all.

Went to beach after school still in her uniform

Thursday, 3 Jan 2008: Second Day
Lauri went inside her class room herself, sit nicely in her place. After 1 hour, I heard a child cry. When the door open, OMG it’s Lauri that was crying. She cried so hard and quite long. It turned out that she didn’t want to write. So it’s a homework for me. She had to finish write 1, 2, a, and b at home.
When I asked Lauri why she cried, she said: She (she refer to the teacher) scold me.
Even at home, she give me all sort of reasons not to write, from “I am sleepy”, “I am tired” until “I am not feeling well”

Friday, 4 Jan 2008: Third Day
Today, my MIL who sent Lauri to school since I had another appointment. About 30 minutes after the school started, I called her and asked how was Lauri doing. She said, “Well, you can hear it yourself” and I could hear in the background that Lauri was crying. Waaahhhh, I think I have a problem here.

Monday, 7 Jan 2008: Fourth Day
In the morning when I changed her, she already told me that she doesn’t want to go to school. Then she refused to go to her classroom. When I forced her in, she cried. However, the teacher managed to make her stopped crying and she stayed in her class until it’s over. She seemed happy enough when she got out from her class.

Today: Fifth day
She still said that she didn’t want to school in the morning, but at least she was willing to get inside the class and didn’t cry the whole day. Well, at least some improvement.

I noticed that in her class, Lauri is the only new student. All the other students were already attended the school the previous year. They offers Pre-Kindy 1 (for 3 years old), Pre-Kindy 2 (for 4 years old), Pre-School 1 (for 5 years old) and Pre-School 2 (for 6 years old). Since Lauri is going 4 year this year, she is in the Pre-Kindy 2 program.

When I first saw the other class mate, I thought I went in the wrong class. They are all smaller than Lauri. Until I double check again with the principal. She said that all of them are 4 years old in this year.

That is the "cross-over" period! Not to worry.

I had this problem when I was young. My problem was because the teacher was "not so nice". I was happy to go to school when I changed to the other class with a nice old lady as my teacher.

Oh Lili, don't worry it will pass. Remenber that she was always at home, so that is a big step for her!

Hope she gets over it soon, the teacher should be more considerate.
My sons started at age 4 too, and even then I considered it too young. In my time we started at 5 or 6.
