Teaching the Pre-K Class

I didn't know what to expect when going into work today. Turns out the pre-K teacher didn't make it in so I fulfilled my dream of being the "kindergarten" teacher. Fun times. Just five little ones to look after. Easy peasy.

I'd taken one of my monarch caterpillars in to show the children and so the little creature became the focus of a short science lesson and paper project. At naptime I read stories for an hour to a few children who either couldn't sleep or had already woken up. It made naptime (and sitting in while another teacher took a break) much more tolerable for all of us. The kids were happy and I felt good too.

Tomorrow the center is closed for the 4th of July and I have absolutely no clue what awaits when I return on Wednesday. Thankfully that does not intimidate me anymore. It just makes eery day an adventure.

    1. It was a fun day. I'd planned to take the little guy back today, but it was time for him to slip into his chrysalis and I didn't want to shake him up in the process. He's all tucked in this afternoon. Now I wait. (I've never witnessed this before myself!)
