First time to school
August 10, 2007 4:57am CST
I started my schooling forty eight yeats ago when I was six. Before that my father taught me at home to read and write. He spread sand on the newspaper or in the floor and took my forefinger and taught me to write the alphabets of my mother tongue in the sand. After writing one he will spell it and I had to repeat it. Then he will wipe out and write the next one in order. He opened my door to the world alphabets and words. There were no kindergarten at that time. At the age of six, I was taken to the school in Standard 1. I went to the school with our servent. He leave me in a bench in my classromm and go back to our home. I used to jump out of the class and ran to him in the first few days as I was really weired of the new atmosphere. Now when little Allie starts her school today, I just remembered the start of my schooling. I wish her all that is good for life. A new school, new friends, new cloths everything new and it is the beginning of a new life, a truning point in life. It is a remarkable moment in everyone's life. What are your memories of first day in the school?

I love this dissxussion, I can't remember my first time to school clearly, I only remember I was a shy girl in the past. I was afriad of strangers-including new teachers, new classmates. Although there were lots of my neighbors. Before I started my schooling, my mother also taught me at home-I recited poems and learn math which was easiest. More 2 years, I will graduate and get my degree, maybe I will stop my school life in that time.I will miss all my friends in school. By the way, did you learn Chinese? You picture is love in chinese.hehe ^_^I think it is very beautiful.

Thank you Xuejie for responding. But the difference between two of us is that you are only 19 and I am 54 LOL. But, ofcourse, early days makes us nostalgic and they will remain as great missing. I don't know chinese. I haven't learned it. I saw this in a site and I loved it. Then only I came to know that it is 'love' and after that I loved it more LOL. It's very beautiful indeed. By the way, is it a letter or a word?
