OK. After Grant purposely tanked his Kindergarten Assessment, I sat him down and explained to him that by being a stinker he has jeopardized his Kindergarten future. No snack time with the other kids… no recess on the playground… no story time on the Reading Rug… no being Like His Big Brothers.
His eyes got bigger and bigger as I explained all the things he might potentially miss because he had been a little twerp. (I have no problem with exaggeration and scare tactics in order to drive home a point.)
I popped into the school’s office to drop off my “evidence” and hoped we may get to see the Principal, on the off-chance she might be available. Grant got to see her. He answered her questions. She seemed to be quite impressed that he was wearing flip-flops (I guess most kids his age can’t/won’t do it) and said it looked like he was right around where he should be.
Grant will be attending “normal” Kindergarten in September. Whew. Now on with the rest of the week.
