Perspective… The coolest thing happened the other day. I was in my classroom at my desk (rare). I was fretting over how to EVER complete assessments for 20 students that were way behind schedule, many of which are 1-on-1. I had given the kids “silent reading time”, which means I put large bins of books on the tables and they “read”, while loudly pointing out every picture on every page to their neighbor. And a sweet 5 year old walks over to me and out of nowhere says, in her soft voice, “Mrs. Doerr, God has been very good to me.” I was so taken aback. I just sat back in my chair and breathed a sigh of – what I can only call – relief. With one sentence, my little friend had put everything in perspective. I said “Honey, thank you. You are so right! Why do you think God has been so good to you?” And she thought about it and touched her wrist and said, “Well, He gave me my skin.” Only a kindergartner!!

About kindergarteninterlude

I am the mom of two teenage boys and I am a kindergarten teacher. In my classroom, I have heard many nuggets of wisdom and beauty from my 5 and 6 year olds. They have also had me laughing out loud with things they say and do. They are intelligent, creative, honest, kind, compassionate, funny and profound. My students amaze me every day! On this blog, I'll share some of the things they say and do. You'll be amazed, too!
