My lovely kinders are hard at work! We celebrate all of the learning happening daily! The students are getting good at finding things to practice to become their best! I love it! I have also encouraged them to feel proud of all of their progress! As a result, I often hear cheering or a way to go !
So today, one of my little darlings came rushing over to my reading table yelling "Mrs. Brown, I am getting so good at rhyming! Witch and *itch rhyme! " with a very loud voice! Now how can I get upset when she was absolutely right and celebrating her progress! I loved it!
Another funny.... we were discussing all of our senses. Today we focused on the sense of touch. The kids were looking at a flip chart with a picture of teddy bears and other things to spark a discussion. One sweet girl raises her hand so politely and says "she feels crunchy under her dress." Uhhh....crickets chirping because I didn't know what to say. After what felt like an eternity, I asked for clarification. Turns out she was talking about the lace on the bottom of the dress, not anything under it. HA HA HA. To conclude our exploration of touch, I had the children use feely bags and describe what they felt. I caused a ruckus when, to their surprise, they reached in and touched some slimy fishing worms! What a great conversation starter!
What an amazing reminder of how awesome it is to teach kindergarten!
