Kindergarten Days

It was the first week of Kindergarten, and Chelsea was already tired of sitting in her chair. She had spent most of the long summer outside. The transition from summer to the school day had been torture.

Mrs. Smith handed out worksheets. Pencilwas expected to copy some strange doodle.

Chelsea didn’t understand why she had to learn to write numbers. She wondered how anyone could differentiate the squiggles. Chelsea stared at the paper for a minute before the bell rang. It was time for recess! She would gladly take this work home if she could go outside to play.

  1. Perfect flash for the prompt! That transition is so hard, yet I also remember my youngest devastated because he was at the cut-off age for going to kindergarten. Luckily we had a pre-kinder option and he enjoyed that. Your flash brings up the systems and expectations that do not fit active young children.
