I took the day off from my own classroom today to see the class I student taught with.
They are about to head off to Kindergarten and I wanted to see them before they did.
Those sweet little kids showed off all their skills.
Some started last fall knowing zero letters and would draw a scribble for their “name”.
Now they’re writing sentences and their names like Kindergarteners.
My jaw dropped.
It was amazing to see these little ones read books to me.
Spending time in Mrs. N’s classroom was also encouraging to me.
It was almost like hitting the refresh button.
Teaching can be a monotonous and draining job so just being able to sit back and watch a good teacher teach sparks a million ideas.
Plus, all those almost Kindergarten hugs.
Those will get ya.
