We were brainstorming all the different forms of transportation today. I wrote them on the whiteboard, as I do everything else that we talk about.
I called on every child at least twenty times, and we had quite an impressive list. As the children began repeating what was already on there, I attempted to call a halt to the list making.
Jack was insistent that he share ONE LAST THING!
“Twain!” he shouted.
“Well, Jack, I already have train on the list up there. See?” I said as I pointed to train for the one hundredth time.
“But Mrs. Smythe,” he said putting both hands in the air, “I can NOT read.”
And yet again I was reminded that putting lists on the board in kindergarten is something that only the teacher appreciates. Well, the teacher and my two little professors. Other than THAT, it’s chicken scratch.
