Preschool Prediction???

Posted by Picasa
My little stinker starts preschool in a month. And after our brief (less than 30 minutes) stint in story time at the local library last week, I have my concerns. As the above pictures attest, Becks couldn't sit still which makes me wonder how he'll fare during story time and seat work in a structured setting? I guess preschool is all about socialization and learning routines, but I'm still a little worried. I can't tell you how many times I whispered sit on your heiney under my breath as I watched from the art table while he was that kid romping around while the teacher sang 5 Little Monkeys. My little monkey just couldn't be tamed!

Even having me sit with him on the floor wasn't an effective approach - those foam sitting squares were too cool to sit on. He wanted to, well, throw them. During story time. Shoo.

He can also be a bit of a show-off...future class clown???

He sounds JUST like L. I was so worried sending him to school. I'd peek in during circle time at the beginning and he would be running running playing running while most of the other kids were sitting attentively. And I'd sigh. But then he'd come home, knowing the month, or the book they read, or singing every lyric to the song of the week. I told his teachers, and they were a little surprised since he never sat. BUT! By the end of the year, he was sitting, right up front, answering ALL the questions. :) Can't wait to hear how Becks does!

Put him in cargo shorts and cowboy boots and send him on his way to his first day!!

I was a preschool drop-out... don't ask me for any advice, HA!
