Second rule in summer camp? Keep the teacher laughing.


Today in summer reading camp, we were using our sight words in a sentence. I held up the flashcard for the word “is”, and the children all shouted it out.

“Now, who can use the word IS in a sentence?” I asked. They all started shouting at once.


“I is hungry!” said Susie.

“We is going outside!” shouted John.


“Boys and girls, when you use the word is, you say it like this…He IS…something something something. You see?”


George, “ I know, I know! My turn! He is something something something.” (Big smile.)


And with that, George moved to the head of the class.



(Yesterday's Do Good Day brought tears to my eyes. More about that tomorrow.)

Sprite's been mixing up her verbs, most recently with "Where you at?" I try to correct her, but John corrected me when he reminded me that half our city uses that exact phrase. I shudder..

i have a george except his name is mikey and he has some issues so of course he's my favorite 5 yr old and he cracks me up! at an historic recreation village our camp went to (we wear blue tshirts) he sees a green shirt camp out the window. he leans out the window and in his robotic voice says "good afternoon. we are the blue team and we play video games." god i love him!

George sounds very cute! Sometimes I really miss preschool teaching. Luckily I have my four year old twins to keep me in laughs.

You must have the patience of a saint. Years ago, I was sent from a temp agency to be a pre-school teacher's aide. There was NO teacher, just me. I made it through the day with 25 young ones. I left work that day, went straight to a bar and never went back!
