First day of Preschool

B had his first day of preschool today.  We got great reports all around!

He got to ride the bus for the first time to school today.  We are very lucky that he is provided free busing by the school district, since he is on an IEP.  He is the last pickup before going to school and today, the bus was about 20 minutes late.  He started getting nervous and I pulled out all my best stuff to avoid a meltdown.

We had success; the bus pulled up to our house and B jumped on like he had done it a million times before! He hopped up into his seat,  let the helper buckle him in and waved goodbye with a big smile on his face.

I got a call on my cell phone a little over an hour into his class time from his room and my heart dropped.  But alas, the SPED teacher (Mrs. A) was just calling to ask a simple question.  She said B was having a great first day and that I should be very proud of him.  ❤

To keep up communication, we have a notebook in B’s back pack that will go back and forth every day to do simple, quick communication, since Mrs. A is not able to check email frequently throughout the day, this works best.  Today she wrote:

B followed the class routine and transitioned just great! He played near a friend with the magnet blocks for a long time during choice time. It was a good first day!

B reported:

It was awesome! The bus was so cool.  It even had seat belts, which is much better than the city bus because seat belts would be much safer in an accident.  I even met a friend today and her name is Isabelle,  like the other Isabelle I know.  I think I like four year old school.

I am proud of my boy!

    Congratulations! A good first day of school is a really big deal – a ton of change to digest all at once. You should be proud 🙂
