textbooks and toddlers

a busy girl studying early childhood education, playing with other people's children, and having fun doing so

I had fun playing in blocks today as part of one of my classes! Early Childhood rocks! [well, it does until you have to do something not fun like clean the playground when it's 10 degrees out!]

Preschool is kicking my ass. The kids are cute and smart and funny, but the teachers are so uptight and rigid and patronizing it makes me crazy. We have a script for doing everything! I feel like I'm acting in a play rather than teaching children. Oh well, I'll survive... and maybe even have a little fun.

Tomorrow is Miss E day, so that'll be fun. I love that kid so much! She is so funny in how she acts with me- she plays shy for the first 5-10 mins, then warms up and begins treating me like her slave or playmate or substitute mommy (only if mommy isn't around). After the library last week she kept thanking me for getting her the books (I think she might have thought I bought them for her...), she was so genuinely greatful- it was sooo sweet!
