Oh. My. Goodness. Were they adorable or were they adorable? If you were in our classroom early this afternoon you saw Team Awesome zipping around setting up, moving tables, arranging chairs and sorting themselves out with very little direction from me. I went to get extra chairs and when I came back they had finished preparations, seated parents, lined themselves up and were waiting quietly at the front ready to go. And it was 2:27. And the performance wasn't supposed to start until 2:45. See where I'm going with this? 15 minutes of waiting before we could begin and they were ready NOW. They handled themselves fairly well and when it came time to put on the show they shone. I have learned that when teaching intermediate grades the students really have to give a good performance but in Kindergarten the cuteness factor supersedes everything else. I will be posting a video of the children's production as soon as possible so those of you who weren't able to make it this afternoon can watch it here and 'Ohhhhh' and 'Ahhhhh'.... and then press play and watch it again because you just can't help yourself, they are so cute.
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
