5 Awesomely Awesome Things: Kindergarten Things

Teaching Kindergarten can be stressful, it can also be awesome.  Just today I fake fainted, got a massage, was climbed on, and paid to make a craft.

So here are some Awesomely Awesome Things about Kindergarten.

1. Field Trips:

Not only are they great distractions, and a break from the norm, but field trips are also a great time to bond with the kids.  We’ve been to some pretty fun places.  Plus, there is talk of maybe going to a place called “Cheese Land” in the future, which sounds like the best place on Earth to me.  In case you couldn’t tell, the above picture is from when we went to learn about Traffic Safety and how to sit nicely on a subway car (Johnny makes the best faces).

2. Random Surprises:

These tend to happen a lot.  Most of the time they’re good, sometimes they’re snails (like, actually snails).  I really liked the day Holly showed up with her violin and gave us a little concert and even brought a quiz and prizes.

3. Faces:

I love the faces and random expressions my kids make.  Their cuteness paired with missing teeth makes it hard to resist, even when they’re driving me crazy.  This photo will forever be one of my favorite photos of Owen.

4. Sayings:

Few things make me happier than hearing my words pop out of my students’ mouths. So far I have unintentionally taught them such English gems as “Gross,” “Infinity” and my personal favorite “Big Old Mess”.  I can only hope that years from now they will baffle future English teachers with where or how they learned “big old mess”.  They will also have the word “later” permanently ingrained in their brains after this year.  For my Birthday I had my Mom send “Now and Later” candies to share with the kids since they tell me their favorite word is ‘now’ and mine is ‘later’.  They loved the blue ones, can you tell?

5. Discoveries:

Even though classes like “Arts and Craft” and  “Science Experiments” make me want to rip my hair out.  I do love it when the kids go crazy over new discoveries.  I like it even better when they have those moments of enlightenment and we’re sitting nicely reading a book, but that’s just me.

They wear me out, but they mean well… most of the time.  Plus it’s hard to be mad too long when they’re so cute.
