Ask any child what the toughest part of kindergarten is and chances are good that they will say, “Fighting!” Fighting is a part of the learning experience, but is usually viewed as negative. In truth, fighting teaches children how to stand up for themselves. In kindergarten, a child will be expected to stand up for themselves and their classmates if someone is being bullied or treated unfairly. So when does school begin for a child with behavior problems?
When Does School Start
Once the child has made it through the primary school year, it is time to move on to the next grade. It is important that children pick up the skills they have learned throughout the year. The best way to accomplish this is through in-person instruction. A trip to the principal’s office can provide children with an in-person example of what grades mean and what is expected from them. In person instructions are usually given first during the fall semester and second during the spring semester.
Beginning on the first day of September, most districts starting Mondays, children can begin receiving instruction from a teacher in the classroom. There are often a couple of choices for the teacher when it comes to the first day of September. The teacher can give the children a formal morning/afternoon/evening lesson. If a parent is concerned about the safety of the child being taught by an unknown person, the parent can find out who the teacher will be during the school year. This information should be provided to the parent in writing or emailed to the parent.
When the date of the start of kindergarten rolls around, most children will move onto the first day of September. Even though most local districts allow children to start going to school on the first day of September, some charter schools choose to wait and make the start of the new year a last day. However, most charters give students until the last day of August to begin kindergarten. These same schools also will give students the option of moving onto the next grade.
Why does Schools starts after summer ?
Most schools start Sept. 4 with grades one through six. Once the child moves into their new classroom, grades seven and eight will be determined by what happened in the previous grades. After the new grades are determined, the child will be placed in the appropriate class. At this point, most local districts require parents to sign a form acknowledging that they have received instruction in their home from the principal. Students will be tested in mathematics and reading once they reach kindergarten.
After the tests and once the child is in kindergarten, most states require a progress report in order to determine the academic progress of the child. Students will receive a grade on every point that is reached during the course of the year. Most states require that students in kindergarten complete a literacy development program and a numeracy development program. The first two subjects typically teach reading to children and the third subject teaches reasoning skills.
Starting a K-12 educational program at kindergarten is considered an important step in the academic preparation of your children. Starting a year early allows your child the opportunity to catch up before the first term begins and enables them to be ready for the first day of school in September. In case you will have an arriving student, you should provide them with a copy of the schedule for the start of the school year on Monday of the first week in September or on Monday of the second week in September.
After all of the testing is done and the schedule for the academic year has been finalized, it is time to get started. Parents should begin discussing how their children will fit into the preschool classroom. If the child has special needs, work with the school system to find accommodations so that the child can participate in the educational process. Beginning school early gives you time to prepare for the academic challenge of teaching kindergarten.
