By far one of my favorite pics from her birthday!!!
In my Pre-K classroom I have many different types of children: the quiet, the opportunist, the mischievous, and the imaginative. I love working with each type, though each challenging at time, but I’m finding lately, the hardest of them all is the imaginative.
One student in particular has imaginary friends. Up until about a week ago, “they” have been normal people. She describes one as a man and one as a woman, who she talks to regularly, sometimes they come to school, sometimes they don’t. Last week I noticed it was getting increasingly harder to get her to focus. She is constantly talking to theses “friends”, playing with them instead of doing centers or eating or playing on the playground. Today I finally asked her if she could ask them to help her make better choices, because if they didn’t, they were not going to be allowed at school.
She began telling me that her friends are power rangers and she must help them keep us safe and at that time they were back in the plant they are from and she would talk to them when they returned but she couldn’t make any promises because what they do is pretty important.
HOW DO I COMPETE WITH THE POWER RANGERS?!?!?!?
I literally can not get her to do anything during the day unless my assistant or I shadow her. If we look away for a moment she is off in her own world. What do I do?
I don’t know if I’m loving my husband right…I feel like there’s a wire disconnected in side of me, like the plug has wiggled it’s way out the socket and needs to be pushed back in. Like I loved him better once upon a time and now I’m sucking at it. He deserves the best and I just want to give it to him. I need pray a lot more than I have been and do some self searching…
That is all…
Now that I’m back in my home town everyone wants to be Kalaya’s relative. Hi I’m cousin…Call me auntie… I’m Grammie… DUDE DONT CoNfUsE MY CHILD!!!! Be who you are and she will love you simply because I love you!
I received the call today…I’M IN THERE! I go to fill out paper work on Monday and start Tuesday. It’s a full time lead teacher position for Pre-K. I’m all too excited. I can start letting my creativity flow free, while working, and getting paid!
I have to admit, I am somewhat nervous, which isn’t always a bad thing. I just want to be GREAT, but I know it will take sometime to learn the class and classroom needs. The good thing about the interview process was getting time to intact with the children. I spent a good 15 minutes talking to…MY CLASS, as they prepared for snack and the all seemed warm and inviting. There was one that never spoke but as I interacted with the table he was at, he continued to smile!
Eventually, I think I will enroll Kalaya as well, but I would like to wait til she turns 2 because it would be A LOT cheaper…A LOT. However, seeing as we just moved here, I don’t have anyone to really watch her. My mom and brother will be visiting for a week, so that will be covered, but beyond that…no clue.
Ultimately, I know it will all work out!
#sample of Tuesday morning art project! This week will be super fun #prek
Bey took her braids down AND washed her hair👏👏👏👏 He understands the struggle😫 her hair is growing so fast and edges have finally sprung forth #hallelujah
She’s getting so big, I just can’t deal!!!! 2 in 2 months…guess I Gould start thinking about her birthday!!!
Just hen I decide to blog more I get a job!!! AMEN! But I’ve been running around like a chicken with…well you know, trying to learn all the ropes before the school year starts on Tuesday. Well our centers’ school yer will start the following week due to the fact our principle had no clue what she doing and so she finally decided transitioning the kids into there next class was a good idea instead if just dumping them in there. So next week the kids will go into there new class more time each day until in Friday try spend the whole day from them on! Once things settle I will write more about the craziness going on at the center.
Other than that things have been good! Kalaya has been talking even clearer than before and more than before, if that’s even possible! Cory just finished up his dirt temp job! My mom and Micah are still in town…mommy doesn’t want to go back! Can’t wait for this four day weekend!!!! Will write more then…
