K is for Kindergarten

      I am so THANKFUL for Kindergarten and for the Kindergarteners that make it what it is! There are no words that could explain what happens inside my classroom each day. Yes, there is chaos. Yes, we make messes. No, we don't achieve all I have planned each day and no, we don't always get along. What we do have is something like magic,  and the pictures say it best! 

by Robert Fulghum
Most of what I really need
To know about how to live
And what to do and how to be
I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top
Of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sandpile at Sunday school.

These are the things I learned:

Share everything.
Play fair.
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life -
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.
