Day 51

Here’s an idea for homeland security: gather all the Kindergartners from nearby areas and have them play near the southern border – NOBODY will be able to do ANYthing illegal without them discovering it and reporting it immediately. 🙂  Of course, first, you will need supervisors to train them, break up their arguments, and ensure who-goes-first-in-line on a daily basis.

Nice to be back with the little ones in Melvindale today. I really enjoyed teaching them “Five Little Bluebirds” and “Pizza Hut Song” and they loved it. There were a few times that it seemed like I was herding cats, but for the most part, they were a fun bunch, and they did almost all of the work that was set out for them.

“Stay off the ice.”
“I’m not a door – don’t knock on me.”
“Okay, this is the third time I’m explaining this – please listen.”
“Do I look like your teacher? Then don’t think that I will always act like her.”
“Sit down. Sit down. Sit down. Go to your seats. Sit down. I will not answer your question if you walk up to me. Sit down. Stay in your seat and raise your hand and I will come and help you. Why are you out of your seat? Sit down. I don’t know why you are out of your seat. Sit down.”

After finishing one assignment, they were given another one. After finishing that one, I  mentioned working in their “busy notebooks” but most of them were happy to just chat and gravitate towards their friends. One boy, though, came and asked, “What am I supposed to be doing right now?” It was so sweet – he was so concerned to be doing the right thing. 🙂
