Our first week together ended well. We made our jellyfish out of while construction paper and silver glitter. Monday I will attach the curling ribbon tentacles and hang them from the ceiling. It will be too cute! I’ve found that this group of children has a problem using their inside voices! Don’t get me wrong, I know pre-k children can be loud – but these children literally yell when they talk! It’s just too much for me! So I’m trying to figure out a way to work on this. Talking to them and modeling what kind of voice we should use just isn’t working! Suggestions would be appreciated!
I’m not very optimistic about all my parents either. For example, one little girls mom went up to another teacher and asked her if she was her daughters new teacher. The teacher said no, pointed us out, and we introduced ourselves. The problem you ask? The teacher she asked had been her daughters teacher all last year! Obviously, she is not a very involved mother. *Sigh* Why don’t more parents care?!
On another note, I found two big books at the local thrift store! They are not in total perfect condition (some wear to the covers) – but for $2.50 – I couldn’t pass it up! I’ve gotten my entire collection of big books at thrift stores or garage sales and have never paid more than $3.50 for a book! You can’t beat that especially since I’ve seen them sell new for upwards of $20! I just love bargains! 🙂
