Kindergarten for Gabriel
In Tennessee the cut off date for Kindergarten is September. Here in Indiana the cut off date is August. Gabriel was born in May and I have been trying to decide wether or not Gabriel should attend Kindergarten next year. I really feel like he is ready. But part of me wonders if I am making the right decision. I know that he knows everything he should and more to be ready for Kindergarten but I guess my main concern is socail skills. Part of me thinks he is fine and another part thinks he could use more time to mature. From a teacher stand point I think I would tell the parent he is ready and that is what his teachers have told me but I have some reservations. I guess it really won't hurt either way so we will be going to the Kindergarten round up on March 5th and the plan is for him to attend Kindergarten in the Fall. From then on we will be slaves to the schools schedule.
