Tuesday.. is it Friday yet?
>For some reason today I cant seem to ” get up and go”. If I were a worksheet teacher – I am not – today would be the day we color and cut and sit at the table for hours. But, since I know that is not appropriate for my age group- I didnt. What I did do was a lot of observing for WSS. These kiddos are really hilarious when you stop and listen to them.
J as she passes through the house ” Sister Whitlee , come here.” She and Whitlee have been pretending they are sisters a lot . For some reason, this struck me funny today and reminded me of my grandma’s pentecostal church.
I am thankful for kids that make me laugh.
Randy is taking INDEX now. INDEX is the study of Math and Science for children. He is in Fayetteville in class most Monday nights from 6:30 – 9:30 and a Saturday or two I think. Today he was excited to introduce some of the new books he got to the kids. One was called ” Inch by Inch” and it is about an inch worm that goes along measuring the things he runs into. Another one was called ” If Animals Wore Clothes.” That one was pretty funny. It should things like a camel with hats on it’s humps and Randy’s favorite page- which was a chicken with trousers on and an egg obviously in the seat of it’s pants. Funny Stuff…. that is another great thing about extra trainings- it gets you fired up to share new things with the kids.
I want to briefly address a couple of the comments that were made on my blog yesterday about my use of the term Indian. I am like the Jones Center – any and all comments are welcome as long as you behave like ladies and gentlemen. The first comment that was made about using the term ” Indian” was ok… I can handle that one . We all have different beliefs on how/ what to teach our kids. The one about the headdresses was obviously someone trying to stir a little controversy. I am quite sure they were not done exactly as they were done years ago since we used colored construction paper and glue, but hey, the last time I saw a turkey he didnt have a fan tail full of colors either. These are kids… loving and learning without an agenda. Yes, it is my job to properly educate them and I am doing so- maybe not to your standards but to mine. And.. it is my home and my job…. The thing that really got to me is the poster did this anonymously. If you have the nerve to point out something you feel I am doing wrong, please claim it. Or to go a step further there is a link for a personal message. This blog is to inform and entertain the parents of my preschoolers. I love doing this.. but ” Mrs. Anonymous” you completely stole my joy in my job yesterday. Finding those comments can really be a blow to a teacher that tries to go above and beyond to do her job right. I am not perfect nor do I pretend to be. You might have had great intentions but there had to be a better way to handle this. From now on anyone that comments has to be registered.
