simple life of a grand mother
I haven't heard the term 'kindergarten' since I was a very young boy at school.
I thought it was an everyday word?
Me too, even Google told me it is ok, but you can never know with Google.
I went to Kindergarten where one woman taught all ages from 4 to 7. I learned to read with her and then she told my mother there was no more she could do for me at 4 1/2 and I left and went to Prep school. My brothers all went to a different kindergarten. I am not sure I know of any kindergartens around here anymore though.
But the first class at prep school is probably still called the kindergarten part of the school.
How do you call the daycare for 3, 4, 5, years old?
I went to kindergarten too.
They call them nurseries.
Thank you Rachel
Something is wrong with my English , i know it all the time... i picked it somewhere in Blogland..
I think your English is very good!
Tank you Jennifer:)
So do I Yael.
Realy? thank so much Rachel, so many times i think about deleting the blog because i feel so stupid with my English.
Cute grandpuppies! I think the one in the first photo could use a hair cut above his eyes. It must be hard to see through that fur! :)
He just got a hair cut Jennifer, it was a windy day He is a good dog, a small one that thinks that he is very big, some big dogs in the neighborhood realy respect him so much.
Dog No 1 is very much my sort of dog; I like them medium sized and scruffy (unlike my present dog).
You would like my schnauzer then Cro ! Though by lunchtime he will be less scruffy, as he has his 6/7 weekly grooming this morning.
If i will ever have a dog when i shall be realy old, this is the kind of dog i want.
Dogs are so much part of a family. My daughter too has grand babies ... dogs, one named Bella and the other Ferguson. I have always known kindergarten as a word.
The dog2 Wasay, we got 10 years ago when our neighbor's son went for a year to the USA and ask us to keep her for 1 year. She never went back to him when he returned.
It is raining here so our two dogs, big ones, are inside. They rule us and one even talks, kind of. We have 2 doggy grandchildren Blossom and Angus. And yes, I send them a little Xmas gift each year. Having four children I expected more than two precious human grandchildren so doggy grandchildren are fine by me. Dogs truly are wonderful.Margaret
All over the world dogs are rulling their owners in a very delicate way.
Never a truer word written yael x
I know that you know John.
Your English is always perfectly understandable Yael, so please don't worry. Here in SE England, my granddaughter went to" nursery"all day from the age of about 6 months( just 2 days a week, and they had to pay). She then started " pre-school" just before she was 4 ( paid for ) for a year and then " infant school" at nearly 5, where she still is. The next step will be " junior school" at 7.
Iknow that i am making a lot of mistakes Frances, but i am too lazy to check, thank you .
In the U.S. children go to private (i.e., the parents have to pay for all of it) day care or pre-school until they are 5. After that, what we call public school (paid by taxes) is free. Children spend a year in kindergarten before starting elementary school, which usually lasts from 1st - 5th grade. Middle School (also called Junior High in some places) usually runs from 6th - 8th grade. High school runs from 9th - 12th grades. There are exceptions and regional differences, but there is always kindergarten.
Almost the same sistem here, so now i can be quiet about using the word kindergarten. Gary never came back too see how his comment took the focuse from the family members.
Kindergarten is a perfectly normal word. It's used all the time in the north of England. Maybe there are regional differences. Like dog 1. Friendly sort.
So it was not a big mistake as i thought.
