In the Mind of Kindergarteners

This week subbing for art in the afternoon has been pretty eyeopening when it comes to teaching really young students. As a middle school teacher, I have never had to wrangle 15 kindergarteners in a class. However, this week I got to experience just that. And let me tell you, I’m exhausted from it. Still, their enthusiasm and random conversations kept me more than entertained. Every shape they made out of clay was so amazing that they had to show me right then! A flattened piece of clay, which looked like nothing to me, became a sting ray, which all the other student cheered over. They loved to tell me about how the kid next to them went to the same preschool or that, when they get full from eating, they give the rest of their food to their brother. My  name became “Mrs. Banana,” or today, “Mrs. Banana Pants.” How that happened, I have no clue. But the name stuck, which cracked me up. How can you not be entertained when a 4 year old raises their hand and seriously calls you “Mrs. Banana???” Also, there were a lot of illicit butt jokes and yelling of the word “wiener.” Of course, a whole lot of tattling on each other too. While it was a week that never had a dull moment, I’ll be glad to have my seventh graders back next week!
