It’s that summer school time of year again for Emily.
We are fortunate here in our township to have an extended school year for the special ed kids….so they don’t lose some of the progress they made during the regular school year.
I was never a big fan of summer school because I think kids need their time to just have fun. But since having Emily, I understand why the routine of school needs to continue, even through summer. The program here, lasts 4 weeks and runs from 9:15 – 1:15. [longer day since she will be Kindergarten age] Emily will also have her one on one aide during this program.
The kids need routine.
They often don’t understand why they aren’t getting on their bus every morning and heading to class like usual. Missing their teacher.
By not having this regimented schedule, because of a summer break….it often leads to meltdowns at home. Not pretty. Trust me on that one.
So here’s to the extended school year and getting back into the ROUTINE OF THINGS.
