Shelley: My husband tells me I talk too much. I tell him that I have a lot to say. Here’s the solution…Welcome to my blog!
The Mantra of a 5 year – old
I teach kindergarten.
I teach the ABC’s of Yoga.
I work with 27 amazing young minds every. Single. Day.
Each one of those minds is housed within a nonstop, typical 5 year-old, healthy, on the go body.
Trust me; I get exhausted just being around them.
Trust me again when I assure you that they truly (ironically) energize me!
Kindergarten is a long day and a short year. Naps no longer exist and recess simply isn’t long enough.
What the curriculum expects of these young learners is not always age-appropriate.
As a kindergarten student, the expectation is that you will perform and conform.
As a five-year old, you know to listen to your teacher (and your body).
Not necessarily in that order. Children know how to prioritize, they know how to self-regulate.
