Hey! It’s Wednesday. My one day with a group of students in the middle of the day. I sleep late, and get to school with, get this seven minutes to spare! I’m doing well!
Wednesday is kinder library day. We only have 11 of them, they are a bright batch of kids and I enjoy the little ones. Today we read a book about a boy who couldn’t sit still. I can relate well, since I have that same issue. Most of these kids can sit still, so this was a story that was really about me!
After our story, we have a library skills lesson. I like the lessons at this age, since we are still working with crayons. I love to color, but I try to restrain myself from actually doing the lesson for, I mean, with them. If I did, they would never get time to find their weekly library book.
I only get an hour a week with the kindergarteners, but it is an hour of fun I look forward to every week. I miss being in kindergarten myself. I still remember my teacher. Her name was Mrs. Stanley and she was full of energy and fun and joy. I miss my daughter being in kindergarten. It was so fun…now, school is work for my daughter. She is a very smart and driven child. Her grades and work ethic are absolutely commendable.
Again, I digress. I think it is because I cannot sit still. I have to be constantly moving and doing and talking and sharing my ideas. I guess because a kindergartener’s mind isn’t cluttered with all the stuff that responsible adults have to keep in theirs.
Oh, to be in kindergarten again!
