Chalk Talk: Helping A Child With Fears of First Grade
Many children, when faced with first grade, become a little fearful. This is due to the idea that they are now entering new territory where they will be expected to learn many new things. This fear can appear as clinginess, changes in sleeping or eating habits along with many other ways. To help a child overcome this fear, help them to see that the unknown can become familiar. If a child is unsure about the new schedule they will have to follow, start the schedule in the summer. Perhaps they are afraid of some of the new ideas they will have to learn. If this is the case, find some fun or creative ways to practice these skills at home. The internet can help find many ideas. The most important thing is to find out what is the foundation of their fear and then try to find a way to help them face the fear. Then they can look upon first grade as a wonderful step in their education.
