I'm good, but I'm not THAT good.

I love finding notes from the kids on my table. It THRILLS me that they are sounding out words, and that they care enough to leave me a note.

I believe that says something about loving school and something about centers being awesome.
That one should need no translation. And frankly, I miss them more.



What? Who doesn't love free play????????

I've decided that this says, "Even though I can't speak or write English, you are the best teacher in the whole wide world and I love you."


(If by the remote chance any of you can read Chinese and it says "You are a crazy teacher and I can't wait to leave this country!", I don't think I want to know. )



I love my blissful ignorance.

Vodka Logic said...

Awesome..

And whatever the Chinese says that he/she can write like that so young is amazing. Has to be harder than English.

Your job sounds so rewarding

What? No labels?
Really, are you feeling okay?

My word verification is
"anglisen"
I'm sure that's a word for you; something about Anglos and... something.

Haha! Thank you. I really needed to laugh today :)

Free play? Really? What I saw said, "I love foreplay". Oops. Yep, you better stick with free play that is more appropriate.

Maybe the Chinese note is from a parent. Love them though!

My word verification is SURENARK. Is it telling me that you're defintiely the nark?

I feel like this about my 9th-graders. I get told "I love you" every day by teenagers--what could be more fun than that?

I admire you for doing it in Kindergarten--that is the most exhausting job in the world! And youi obviously rock.

How did "Anonymous" get into your K class?

I think the note says, "Your blog is super cool and I like leaving comments that no one can read."

Rima said...

I want to be in your class! You sound like an AWESOME teacher :)

CatLadyLarew said...

Free play and centers... life is good!

Susan Higgins said...

Notes like the ones your students leave for you would certainly make me jump out of bed in the morning, anxious to get to school.

You are so truly blessed... you must be an awesome teacher.

My 6 year old is becoming a more proficient writer (ie. uses vowels) and it's a bit sad really!

BabyBokChoy said...

It says:
I love my teacher.
I love my teacher, really.
I love my school.

School was in the oval to indicate that it was meant to be one character.

So you are teacher of the year 2010 for sure then!

Keyona said...

I wish I had more free play time....:)

just making my way said...

So great. It's the deciphering that gets me. Sometimes it's easy to figure out. Other times? Well, it looks kind of like that last example!

Anna See said...

SO sweet! Here's to a weekend of free play.

The Only Girl said...
