Wordgirl started kindergarten today at the Norton Space and Aeronautics Academy (NSAA). It’s a lofty name, I know. It’s a charter school with a dual immersion Spanish/English bilingual program. We’re pretty happy about all of it, and more so after the orientation yesterday. We were just really impressed by everything/everyone we saw.
The girl child is hard to read sometimes. She seemed as accepting of this next step as she is of anything. We’ll see how it goes. They warned us yesterday that in the 90% Spanish kindergarten, the first month is really tough, and then they start to understand and it gets easier.
A couple church school friends started today as well. The two flanking Wordgirl are second cousins. Their grandmothers are twin sisters. Their whole families attend the church. The boy’s grandmother was completely tickled that he and WG would be in the same class. Wordgirl considers the girl one of her “best friends,” and she was pretty sad they wouldn’t be in the same class. We were all relieved when they got the same recess.
