Last night after Cass came home (With Smiles so she had fun)from Kindergarten round up (our registraion ) she will be in Kindergarten next year!!
but She had to make apoint to me that she did not talk at all!!
I know she is a shy and quiet kid but Do you think maybe she is too quiet!
I said this to her Preschool teacher and She had said that CAss rarely says anything!! I guess Iwas wondering if I should be concerend since she is happy and Loves to go I know she loves her teachers casuse she makes Pictures all the time for them!!
so She is doing Good on that fornt!! but I guess Im afraid that maybe cause sheis soooo Quiet that she will fall through the cracks at school and not get help when she needs it!!!
I went through the same thing with Arielle, she is shy in the classroom but on the first day of school she made friends with a boy named Hayden. Arielle and Hayden do everything together at school I think her becoming friends with him helped her out.
What is your daughter like when she is around her friends is she quiet or outgoing? Maybe talk to your daughter about it say if you need help with anything dont be afraid to ask your teacher or teachers helper for help.
Growing up i was extremely shy my teachers didnt know i was there half the time I was very quiet I wish i wasnt but i didnt want to inconvience the teacher.
I did grow out of it when i graduated from highschool. The funny thing was when i was around my friends i was fine not very shy.
she seems to make frineds she just doesnt talk~~ my biggest Fear is that she will fall into the cracks at school cause she is so quiet that they wont see when she needs help!! I planon Being a BIG presence in the school (They are gonna be sick of me LOL)
I just htink that when kids see Mom and Dad be a part of hte school It shows they are intereted in them! and lets them see how imp School is!!
Thanks it helps to know that there are other kids like Cass Adn that she will survive!!
She has donr good in Preschool so far she just doesnt talk much ther but ALwyas seems happy to go and COmes home and tells me everything as the day proggeses!!
JMO but it sounds like that is just who she is. I was a very quiet child myself. I felt more comfortable taking in and observing my surroundings. I listened well and enjoyed school. I preferred to go with the flow as opposed to starting the waves myself. As long as she is communicating to you and her teachers, I think she will be great in school. It will also give her a chance to come out of her shell once the surroundings become familiar. Good Luck!
I agree with the others: I too was one of those quiet kids.
If you're concerned about her falling through the cracks: that's great that you're already aware it might be an issue. Keep on top of it-- it's not too difficult when they're young. If it turns out that she does have trouble with something- say the letter "C", use that as an opportunity for you and her to brainstorm on what she might do. For example: yuu could write a note to the teacher, she could raise her hand and ask for help, you and she could both stop by before school to see the teacher, and so on. As long as you're on the lookout for problems, I bet it resolves itself.
In terms of bringing her out of her shell a bit: is she enrolled in any sort of extra-curricular activities? Perhaps gymnastics, Tae Kwon Do or dance would give her a bit more confidence.
