Today’s first #kanji is #室. Its #うかんむり(宀) suggests it  has something to do with a building. The inside part 至(いたる) can mean “to reach” or “extreme.” I guess 室 can be an end of a house?

The funny thing is 室 is taught to Year 2s in Japan but 至 is not taught until Year 6. Am I the only one who thinks that strange?
