Kicked Out of Kindergarten – School Memory Linky

What do you remember about kindergarten or about the grade in which you teach?  Let’s get to know each other a little and link-up or comment below what we experienced in those first critical years!  I’ll go first!

Well… I was enrolled in Catholic Kindergarten… the same school my entire family had gone to for ages.  As a matter of fact, the picture above is the same tree photo most others in my family have!  Little did they know know that Jenni was coming – you can sort of see it in my eyes!

I remember… in no particular order:

  • Biting a child’s finger because he asked me to do it.
  • Running and trying to climb the fence to escape… a lot!
  • Kicking and screaming because they took my pillow away during nap time.
  • Going to the office… a lot more!
  • Having to be pulled from the playground kicking and screaming because I did not want to go in.
  • Having to apologize to the office staff for being bad on a regular basis.
  • And oh yeah… being REALLY mad at my mom because one night at an event she would not let me have any fruit salad!
Needless to say… I was kicked out of Catholic kindergarten and now I am a kindergarten teacher!  
Too funny if you ask me!  Did I learn anything… this I am not sure!  When I moved schools, my new teacher’s name was Mrs. Fox… which I just now realized is going to be my son’s kindergarten teacher’s name this very year!  (Exciting!)  I remember reading books in this class… she had an amazing fort-type library that we got to climb up to go read in.  I also remember doing sight words for some reason… random huh!  They were on rectangular red cards and she would just flash them to us!
