Do you remember the day when you entered the large halls of an unknown building, and your parents said, “have a good day”…”have fun at school”…”you are growing too quickly”…
Well, maybe you remember, maybe you don’t…that first day in kindergarten was important to your continued growth. That first day was important to forming many, many impressions on what would be a long or short learning career.
What do you remember? Were you a little frightened? Were you excited? Were you a little of both? Write about the emotions. Write about the friends you established…write about the relationships you established and lost. Remember poems are simple, but have all the power of a story in a little, tiny space kind of like the little cubbie you had for all of your stuff. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
Here is our view of the big day…share and enjoy…
Kindergarten Starts Today
Kindergarten starts today.
I am ready.
New people and places.
Don’t need my teddy.
Enjoy learning new things.
Remember my lunch please.
Grab your backpack and supplies.
And some band aids for my skinned knees.
Reading and writing will be fun.
Then at recess, we can run and jump.
Earn good grades and stay out of trouble.
No worries, I’m growing up.
