Friday was orientation for our Pre-K Parents. Most of the parents from my class came and also brought their children. The children were all very well-behaved during the super long and boring presentation that we have to do. I felt like this: While the parents were filling out paper work, one of the active (but not misbehaving) boys was making it hard for his mom to get the paperwork done. I called him over to me and we had a long conversation about cars and by the time his mother was done with the paperwork he was laying on the bench I was sitting on with his head in my lap.
Then there was a little girl who kept on coming over to give me hugs and kisses. She is also in my class.Later in the afternoon, I got to watch all of my students from last year come in an inch or two taller and find their new classrooms during meet the teacher. Not going to lie, I totally charged them all and gave them the biggest hugs. Got lots of hugs and kisses from the moms as well.
In the afternoon, one of my ESE kids came. He had just been registered that day. I took him to see the room. He walked up to my alphabet poster and said, “A - apple, B - Ball…” while pointing to letters.
I am so excited about tomorrow that I don’t know that I’ll be able to sleep.
