I Remember My First Day At School

Was it the worst experience of your life or one that you'll cherish forever? Whichever way the pendulum swung for you, you'll probably remember it so come on, tell us your story! 150 People

    Kindergarten. I remember being

    so tiny. Other kids called me the baby. At first I cried but then the next day when one called me a baby I gave him a bloody nose. Now I'm a year ahead of him. I'm going to be a junior and he's going to be sophomore. We're friends now by the way... Oh and I'm still tiny.

    Started At Three Years Old

    While other kids have a fear of separation from their mothers, I never did as a kid. I'm so eager to be separated that I started schooling at three. I remember my first day. I was so excited to attend the class while other kids who were older than me, are crying.

    Exciting

    I was the kind of a kid who likes to make friends and couldn't more or less care about what others thought of me . But at the same time I would obviously feel nervous like any other kid . At that time i was probably only about eight, and I was glad to leave my parents...

    Yes I Remember The Square Tables!

    I remember after nursery experiencing sitting down on the carpet and experiencing the play zones - school was very exciting.  Mainly because we now had to sit on "tables", in like groups of four.  I remember being very nervous and shy.
