|Joseph leaving school his first day.|
His first day went good. He evidently didn't want to leave at 11. He only goes half days while some kids stay until 5. But he said he had a good time.
The next day, I got an email from his teacher saying that he had a yellow light day (green light is good behavior, yellow is not so much, red is bad). He kept telling her no when she asked him to do something and refused to help clean up. Sounds like typical Joseph. I talked to him about listening to his teacher.
Well, he doesn't go to school on Fridays, and man, was he mad about not getting to go to school. I need to record that for later when he doesn't want to go. He asked to go on Friday and Saturday. Luckily, we have Sunday School on Sunday so that took his mind off of it. He asks me several times a week: "Momma, when we going to Sunday School?" Me: "Sunday."
I worried and worried Monday about his behavior. Finally, Monday night I got an email from his teacher and honestly, I was afraid to open it. But it was a good note about his behavior being much improved.
I love that his teacher sends pictures periodically and emails almost daily outlining what they went over that day. I love that because then I can quiz him at home. Today was the letter B, the number 1, the color red, and circles. I asked him what sound the letter B makes and he said, "I don't want to go to school!" I asked him again and he said, "Ba ba ba." Then he was eating ritz crackers and I asked what shape they were. He said, "Circle." YAY for learning!!!
I'm so excited that he is enjoying school. I just hope he has mostly green light days!
