Going to school is one of the most beautiful moments in life for both the child and his or her parents. It's a new adventure of learning, socializing and growing up
Going to the first grade and gained experiences have one of the key influences on the child's attitude towards learning and education in the future.A positive experience of moving from kindergarten to first grade and starting school without stress, gives greater chances for the child to be successful in the professional, social and personal spheres in the future.
This milestone in the life of a child - facilitated by the good cooperation of parents, teachers and educators.
Readiness for school implies that a child has acquired certain skills that will enable him or her to successfully start life in a new environment and with different responsibilities.
The focus is on communication and language skills, independence, curiosity, emotional and social maturity.
For children to come to school with a smile, the interaction of parents, teachers and the wider community is needed. All these relevant actors should take into account the developmental and educational needs of the child, in order to enable the child's intellectual, physical, emotional, social, moral and aesthetic development.
How mature a child is and will be able to enter first grade depends on his role in the family, his lifestyle, how well he was protected, whether he had obligations to the family and to himself.
The problem is that today we most often have physically as well as intellectually mature children, but they lack the independence, the ability to communicate and collaborate in a group. Parents have high expectations of their children.
The desire of the parents to be the best, everything to be fast and immediate - in children creates discomfort and rejection from school and obligations.
Teachers are under constant pressure from parents to teach children to read and write before school, which is why they go to school - because it is the teacher's job to literate with children.
The job of educators and parents is to work on developing independence and confidence, stimulating imagination and creative problem solving, enhancing motivation for learning, and developing collaboration and communication.
A school-going child should be made aware that something will change in their life.
However, sentences like, "Just wait to go to school" or "When you go to school, there is no more play"… scare the children and create aversion to school.
By intimidation, a child cannot love school. She then receives a message that the school is bad and that when she goes to school she will not be able to do what she loves best. It is necessary to be attentive to the child and his or her anxieties, and not to act harshly, rigidly, and force him or her to commit.
An attitude towards a child should be a relationship of respect, trust and understanding. Parents, in front of children, should not talk about the school and the teacher in a negative context. It is good to point out the positives of school life, to encourage the child. The future freshman needs understanding and support in order for him to go to school to be a normal and natural sequence of events, not an emergency and stressful situation in life.
Teachers should do their best to turn the classroom into a workshop and an imagination room rather than a listening room or a listening room.
Parents are the main collaborators of the teacher in achieving the common goal - for the child to achieve the most he can. It is essential that the child has a permanent place and time for learning at home. Parent at home and teacher at school - should create conditions for the child to be the main actor and his own constructor of his knowledge. If a teacher at school, and a parent at home, do the work instead of the child - he will not be able to develop responsibility for his own success in school learning and overall development.
We should not forget that play is the best and most natural way to learn in both preschool and primary school. In order for a child to satisfy and develop his curiosity, which is as huge as the universe, the school should be a place where he analyzes, thinks, compares, concludes, suggests… the school should be a place where one analyzes, thinks, compares, concludes, suggests…
Everything should be in the function and service of the child's development and the formation of functional knowledge, skills, attitudes and values.
