so ive been sending my middle daughter (4 1/2) to preschool 2 days a week because when the school year starts, she's going to a free pre-k program we have around here that runs with the school year and prepares them for kindergarten. its only 3 hours a day but its a really good program. i knew she'd need to get use to the environment because she is super clingy, attached and socially anxious. she's been going since april and i have seen a *tad* bit of improvement. now she'll only cry as soon as i leave the room rather than as soon as she wakes up, all through breakfast, the carride and dropping her off.
anyway, her teacher told me to practice writing with her at home because when she starts pre-k they'll be practicing their names and she won't write her name at school. the funny thing is, she CAN write her name. she does it all the time at home. and it's pretty amazing because her name has 8 letters.
i told her teacher this and she believes that over time she'll become more comfortable doing it at school. i really hope so because this is just crazy. i don't understand why she won't do it there. when i asked her she lied to me and told me she did write her name.
i'm not going to push it, for now, i just hope when pre-k starts that she'll come around. but she's been able to write her own name for a year now.
