3 days down, 187 to go

It's been 3 days of work, 2 days with the students and 1 day of meetings. What I have learned so far?

* Sparkles and sequins are in for fashion this school year.

* Hello Kitty is the cat's ass right now. Hahah, pun intended. She is on everything from shirts to lunch boxes and if she has sequins, it's even better!

* You can still participate in circle time when you are in the bathroom, if you can shout loud enough.

* Teachers that sit on the floor are cool because you can touch them and maybe sit on their lap if you are so inclined.

* Kindergartners are way smarter now than they were  (OK, I was)  40 years ago.

* In one girl's eyes, I am older than 8, but younger than 25. Yes, she is my favorite.

*I am hysterical to many 5 year olds.

* I still love recess.

* I still am uncomfortable in the cafeteria even though I am not actually sitting and eating lunch.

* Some 5 year olds have some serious balls and are not afraid to stand up to the teacher.

* I have a song about colors stuck in my head. Want to hear it?

* I am really happy tomorrow is Friday and I have no plans for the weekend.

* Teacher's have each other's backs.

* I still like to do crafts. Um, maybe more than the kids.....

That's a lot for a few days. Think of how much more knowledgeable I will be in June! I'll be ready for some sort of degree.... or vacation.

Looks like it's going to be a great year!

Just to be clear: was that YOU participating in circle time from the bathroom, or one of the kids?
