First Day of First Grade

My daughter had her first day of first grade yesterday. It seemed to go pretty well, for the most part. She has some friends in her class with her, and her teacher has a reputation for being FANTASTIC! My daughter seems to like her. What little we saw of the class in the beginning, my daughter was actively participating. When the teacher asked what they thought they would learn in first grade, my daughter was the first to answer, which was "Spelling!"

I heard that my daughter did get a little upset because she wasn't able to finish everything she was working on which frustrated her. However, I heard that nobody was able to finish everything. So, everyone had to finish what they didn't do in class on top of the homework that was passed out. Yikes! This is going to be a tough class. My daughter did complain about the homework being a tad boring, but I assured her it was the first day, and it will get more challenging.

I heard she hit some rough patches during recess and lunch. I'm hoping once things get underway, she'll hit her stride and do better. Overall, it sounds like she had a good first day!

  6. My son has the same problem: if he doesn't finish something, he gets so frustrated. Or if he finishes last, he also freaks out.
