We had a new one at our school today! On Tuesday a mother enrolled several of her children (she has many!) for school. She registered her youngest for 1st grade. Well, we started school the following day on Wednesday. This child was horrible! The first grade teacher said that he was all over the place. Academically he couldn't even write his name and didn't know his letters, numbers etc... Well today (the 3rd day of school) the child, while in conversation with the teacher, told her that he was 5 years old. Of course first graders enter our school being at least 6 years old. She asked him what grade he was in last year and he said "K4" (which is preK in our area). Well, it turns out that he was correct. He is only 5 and should be in kindergarten. His mother didn't remember that he was only five or that he was in PreK. So on Monday I will have another student in my class - lucky me!!! I am hoping that his poor behavior this past week was result of being asked to do things that he was not capable of doing. Thank goodness we found this out now. We have only been in school for 3 days. The office should have caught this when he registered, but he registered at the last minute and everythig in the office was crazy. His former school will be sending his records, but they will not be arriving for a few days.
