10 Things Teaching Preschool Has Taught Me

on October 16, 2013

1. When in doubt, poke it with a stick.

2. Sitting under the table and crying probably won’t solve your problems, but you’d better try it just in case.

3. Sometimes your friend/teacher/mom really is a poo poo head.

4. Walking in line is grossly over rated.

5. Making train noises in the middle of story time is funny, even if your teacher tells you it’s not.

6. Even a foam block when thrown directly at your nose or eye hurts. A lot.

7. The best way to deal with a spilled cup of water or juice is to splash around in it.

8. Yes and no are both acceptable answers to a question, especially at the same time.

9. If you’re going to fake a boo boo so you can get a cool Tinkerbell band aide, make sure the paint is red. Purple is less believable.

10. Your teacher loves you. Even when you call her a poo poo head.
