This is my first post of 2017! Hope still ok to wish all my readers a happy new year!! 😃
After a year of honeymoon, my Aden boy is officially in kindergarten now ;)
I love their uniform, who says pink is only for girls?? xD
First day to school, he was behaving ok (except that he wants me to by his side all the time =_=)
Getting his name tag from his teacher
I enrolled him to the afternoon class, though I still think morning session would be better for me (in terms of sending and picking), but morning class will be a bit tiring for him I guess as he needs to wake up around 7 something...
First week is orientation week so they engaged mostly in singing and dancing....
... also some exercises.....
... and story telling by the teacher
... as well as playing toys...
There will be a few minutes of snack break every day
Teaching them to queue up properly before leaving the classroom.
First few days were kinda messy, all kids playing and running around >.<
Can imagine how the teacher feels looking after 26 kids at the same time haha! I alone jaga 2 kids also nearly faint already LOL!
For the first week, I was there accompanying him. They only attend the school for 2 hours for the first week. This week onwards will be 4 hours.
Yesterday, I was there for about half an hour and when I told him I was leaving, he cried, refused to let me go.
In the end I still left, I heard him crying. But I have to be firm, I know I can't accompany him everyday.
He looks fine when I pick him up, teacher said he was ok when I wasn't around...
I know it will be a challenge sending him to school for the time being, as he is still quite clingy to me, it takes times for him to mingle around people, but have to train him to learn to be independent.
I hope things will go on smoothly after this, gambateh my boy! You can do it!
p/s: my mum said I cried everyday for the first month when I started kindergarten, I hope Aden won't be like me, hahaha!! 😅
