School’s back in session. I can’t believe it’s been a week already. Seen all the classes with two back to back kinder classes at the end of the day today.
Oh. My. Word. I forget what babies they are and how overwhelming it must be for those little kinders. Guiding the to sit criss-cross in rows, being quiet during the story, and learning to twiddle their thumbs.
Yes, I teach them that. It is something I have done all my life. It keeps me calm. While I don’t have proof, I do believe it activates of sides of the brain and it definitely lessen the need for a fidget toy.
The first of school is all about the new year, new hope, and promise of great things. There’s so much planning to do and a schedule to remember.
Plus getting back into the routines. This year I am attempting to turn off the television by nine to read and go to sleep earlier.
