First Day at School Class 2 Poem – Summary
The first day of school is a day of major anxiety for the kid as well as the parents. The kid is surrounded by a lot of questions- how he/she looks, whether he/she will make good friends there at school, how the teacher will be, etc.
In this poem too, the poet Aileen Fisher has brought out the same emotions. The narrator of the poem is a kid who is wondering how his first day of school will be. He/she is thinking about whether or not his/her drawing will be as good as the fellow classmates, whether or not they’ll like him/her.
The purity of a kid’s mind is also evident in the line where he/she wonders if the teacher’s face will look like his/her mom or grandmother. It shows how close the kid is to his/her mom and gran and how he/she thinks of the teacher (a stranger as of now) to be similar to his/her close family members.
In the final lines of the poem, the kid wonders if his/her dog will miss him at home.
The poem beautifully amalgamates kid’s pain of coming out of the comfort zone and anxiety of stepping into a new world.
