Um, What did you Say???
I’ve decided to hold a little on line in-service, in honor of the one I will be attending myself today. It has come to my attention that some of YOU are fluent in our kindergartenese. Now, in case you missed our first session, here it is. Oh, and please initial the sign-in sheet at the bottom so you can receive your ACT 48 CREDIT HOURS.
In order to be a successful kindergarten teacher, one must be bi-lingual. You must be fluent in what we like to call kindergarten-ese. Here are some of the more common words used in this language, followed by a sentence in which that word is used. This might shed some light on its definition!
