Past Tense-First Day of Kindergarten

L-“I’m not nervous. I’m not nervous. I’m totally comfortable. I’m really excited. I’m just so not nervous.”

Teacher during K initiation, circle time:

“Does anyone have any feelings or thoughts he or she would like to share?

L-“Yes, I’m really, really nervous.”

Teacher: “Thank you for sharing that. Does anyone else feel that way?”

Many, many hands instantly fly upward. OF COURSE. Everyone’s petrified. Including me.
