Where did my ears go??

Cute classroom (playground) story. Yesterday, my classroom and I played out in the rain. Surprisingly, they loved it! Usually, they cry, whine and tug at my legs until we go inside, but not yesterday! They all found stuff to play with. It didn't pour on us for long, after awhile, it stopped. One of my littlest ones fell down and wanted to be held. After a a bit, she calmed down and just enjoyed being in my arms. She looked at me, first my eyes, then she pointed to my glasses and said, "ga ga" I said, "yes [child's name], glasses." She touched my nose and said, "o." "yes, my nose." She leaned over and reached for my ears and touched my scarf. She had a very confused look on her face. She could not find my ears. I asked her, "where are my ears?" She looked to the right and left of my head, still confused. I asked her again, "where did they go?" She looked down at the ground. She squiggled out of my arms and started searching for my ears (on the ground!!) I was tickled pink! This is not the first time one of my students have been stumped by my ears being hidden under my scarf, but they have all been able to find them. She is the first to not check under my scarf. My little dear one is still looking for my ears :D

Read the Printed Word

I pledge to read the printed word!

I am hoping the printed book will be around for a long, long time. In my classroom, books are loved (and taught to be respected.) We read books, look at the pictures and sometimes, even make up our own stories, the true joy of reading comes in holding it in your hands.
