Avery’s PreK Year

Avery, Age 5, PreK

Avery, Age 5, PreK

Avery was a school kid this year and attended Goddard 1/2 days for four days a week. He had his Goddard graduation which was bitter sweet. He had gone there for three years and had friends there, but academically, the teachers really did not know what he could do and he never talked there. Over the summer, we worked on transitioning him into thinking about being a homeschooler.
