This year I began my 13th year of teaching...my 1st in Kingergarten
I spent the last 12 years in 1st grade (1 year in 2nd) and Wowee Zowee!
A semester in kindergarten has been a whole new experience!
First I will say my top 3 shockers
1. I had no idea that moving 1 grade level younger would be so much different (afterall, 2nd grade was not that different of a transition from 1st)
Being in school all day for a year makes a big difference! Never occurred to me as a first grade teacher.
2. I had no idea that kindergarteners were full of fumny & cuteness. I mean even just their tinier adorable voices and some still round baby bellies! I'm serious. I.cant.even. 😍
3. So much learning really is their "first" (*sigh).
tiny little fairytales.... growing a little bigger in each magical moment.
I am very thankful for Cara Carroll's and DeeDee Wills' tpt stores and their blogs and to many many others who share daily on blogs, instagram, twitter and Facebook! This teacher is forever grateful. My first year in kinder would be so much harder without so many other amazing teachers out there to learn from!
