the kindergarten way

how kindergarten imitates life

Why the kindergarten way?

on October 19, 2012

When I tell people what I do for a living (I’m a kindergarten teacher in case you couldn’t tell!), people typically react with an “Aw! They must be so cute!” or “Aw! You must love what you do!”. And, yes! we DO play all day, we DO have “nap time”, we DO have lots of fun, and it DOES take a lot of patience. But every second, of every day, the children are learning. They are learning from their teachers and each other, but I am also learning from them.

This blog is meant to showcase the learning that goes on in our classroom. Whether you are a teacher, parent or someone who has little interaction with children, I hope to demystify and share with others the inside world of the kindergarten classroom. I also hope to reveal the connections with how the types of learning that goes in kindergarten can transfer to all ages. Learning should be fun, learning can be playful, and learning might mean slowing down and finding intrigue in our everyday world.
