I was six when I was enrolled. My first day in class was my last day in class as well (in that year). I just cried and cried and cried. I was enrolled a year after.

Thanks for responding and sharing your memories to the readers......I think most of the writers had cried and cried on that day like you....It was a new environment for you which you did not like.

I was young then, I just don't know why I cried so hard that day. I am not sure what is the reason.

That's good,thanks for responding and sharing your views........Some times kids cry without any reason and you must be crying for your mama or papa who had left you in school........at the mercy of your teacher.

I remember my 1st day of pre k. They were finger painting, and I remember everyone's hands being red and green. And I had never done that before. So I was like you want me to put my hands in that?? lol. I was scared and crying. My mom was there with me, but I'm pretty sure I stayed and she left eventually. But I just remember being very scared and nervous. I don't remember my exact age, I'll have to ask my mom. But I was very uncomfortable at my elementary school. I NEVER ate the cafeteria food, the floors were filthy, I just thought the whole school was disgusting.

Oh men, That's a long time ago. Lol. I really don't know what happened during that time but what I remember though is the fact that I was really timid and failed to make friends on my first day in school. First day jitters. Lmao.

I was eager to join school as I watched my brother go there daily and I too wanted to dress well and hop along with him. The thing I remember about my first day n school is my brother had a fight with a boy who tried to pinch me. Both of us were asked to meet the principal on the very first day. He beat both of us and next day I fought with my mother refused to go to school. Its all very funny now.

Thanks for responding and sharing your memories of childhood.Normally you donot get such treatment on first day in school.It was not a big mistake that you were beaten up by Principal........Anyway it was not a good start for you !!

Oh my gosh, that was so long ago. I was five. I really do not remember that long ago to tell you the truth. I remember being in first grade. We did not have kindergarten in our area. I had a lot of problems with my handwriting. I was very good at reading and counting though. First day of school, I have no idea...
