In the previous post I mentioned that I provided some training for my son’s kindergarten teacher before school actually got started. Not only did it give me peace of mind, but I think it helped calm her fears as well. I also mentioned that I gave her a dvd (Alexander the Elephant Goes to School), and she made a point to play it the first day of class. The dvd is only about ten minutes long- perfect for wiggly little 5 year olds. After the dvd there was a little time for discussion and for Little R to show his medic alert bracelet.
School has been in session now for a little over one week, and so far there have already been two birthday sesons where treats were sent in. I provided a little bin of safe treats for Little R so he could choose something on these particular days. Mrs. M told me that just the other day while they were all enjoying some cookies that were sent in, one of the children said, “Hey, why does he get a box of Nerds to eat???” Little R quickly replied, “I picked them out of my bin.” Another little child, a girl I think, chimed in, “Remember the Elephant?” I can picture them now :-) I am glad Mrs. M was there to witness it.
