We really have to start thinking about getting Connor into a preschool program but the closest thing he’s gotten is going to church twice a week. I really found this dvd helpful in introducing the idea of “big boy school” to him as at the moment he relates big boy school to church. I especially loved the episode Blues Clues – Blue Takes You To School as it really shows school from a preschoolers perspective. It also really stresses some important school skills such as taking turns and respecting others. Things Connor really needs to work on. We are doing pretty good on the taking turns but he sometimes still gets really disrespectful of other kid’s spaces.
All of the episodes on Nickelodeon : The First Day of School show school in a really fun and exciting light. Connor is already talking about how he wants to go to school with the “big kids” and I’m dreading and excited all at once for him!
