My daughter is going into kindergarten in less than a month and I have no idea what to think about that. I’m excited for her and nervous for her and wondering how crazy our schedule is going to be. I remember last year when both of the kids went into preschool and it took me a while to get into the new schedule. I didn’t get any work done for a long time. But eventually, it ended up a great time for me to get things done and I loved watching them grow and change.
I imagine Kindergarten will be no different. I do wonder what her schedule will be like. I wonder if she’ll have art and if she’ll have PE. I met with Reebok at Blogher and they told me about a program they are working on call the bok and I’m thinking about meeting up with the principal and finding out if we can get a program like that at school. I mean wouldn’t it be great for all of the kids to have a fun game session where they don’t feel like they are exercising but they are. They say that test scores go up and that our brains are more active after 15 minutes of exercise.
With sports I wonder what kind of supplies we would need. The kids might need lacrosse cleats for soccer or lacrosse. My husband tried getting ready for lacrosse once and he hurt his hand so bad, so maybe that’s not the game for elementary students. I do have a munch of sports kits that I think would be fun to take to the school and would teach them some fun team skills. I bet tennis shoes and smiles would be all these kids really need to bring with them.
