What can I do to help my son better adjust to Kindergarten?

Ivana - posted on 08/23/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




My 5 yr old started Kindergarten about 4 days ago, he's having a really rough time adjusting. He went to preschool, so I would've thought he'd be fine, but it's like pulling teeth to get him to school. The school placed him in a K/1st combo class, would it help if I asked them to switch classes? Any advice on how to help my poor baby adjust, please?

I think you should switch his class sometimes those 1st graders are bigger and they are definitely more advanced.

If the school has a counselor, talk to him/her. Usually kids are excited to start school but after a few days or a week, they realize it's something they have to do everyday and it's not so exciting anymore. It will prob take him a while to adjust
