Me- "This is pink pig. What is this?"
Me- "Yes, this is a pink pig"
The last few weeks I have had the "Story and Drama" rotation so my children are now very good at saying, "Little pig, Little pig. Can I come in? NO! NO! NO! You can not come in!" I think they say that just about every time we see a door.
After the day is over, we count our tokens (yes, they get a token every time they say something correctly) and head back to the group for closing.
Closing is usually a time of utter chaos.... The children don't want to sit there, us teachers are tired and our voices hurt. We attempt at some more singing and language practice and then we do our beloved "Rain Song". For some reason the children love this song and will sit quietly on their mat doing a little dance and we have 3 minutes of peaceful singing.. It is really cute! Often times Oscar will fall asleep while sitting there, Owen will be rubbing my leg (he loves the feel of smooth legs), and Cooper will be dancing like crazy.
Finally, Kindergarten has come to a close. I clock out, grab my stuff and leave the Old School with 27 children yelling "Good Bye" in English and Spanish. By this point I am exhausted and I have no voice. I hop on my bike and ride back over the the New School (where I live) in the blazing sun and cloudy skies to eat lunch and get ready for my next class :)
