- I don’t remember my first day at school because my grandmother decided to send be to a special full-time school. I studied there from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. It was more like a kindergarten than a school. So I didn’t feel the difference and didn’t remember my first day there.
- My grandmother was a very thrifty person.
- But I remember well my second First of September because I changed school and the city and so I was very scared.
- My mother decided to enrol me in a new school in a new town.
- My mother accompanied me to school.
- There was a large area in front of the school, where many children and their parents gathered.
- All the kids in my class already knew each other and they didn’t pay attention to me.
- After the first call, the parents were released on their business, and the children went to their classes.
- In class the teacher showed me where to sit and after a few minutes asked me to go to the board.
- She introduced me to the other kids.
- I glanced briefly at the faces of my classmates.
- They didn’t seem scary to me and I relaxed. They were not as scary as I thought before.
- Then we wrote a dictation.
- I remember that I wrote it by F the mark I received, making three mistakes only in the first phrase “exercise 93” because I wrote “93” in words.
- My mother was called to the school immediately.
- I had to improve my Russian.
- Thank God I didn’t have any problems with the other subjects.
- Because in addition to the main homework I did 2-3 topics from the previous year Russian textbook every evening.
