Remember my previous entry where I complained about working as a Kindergarden teacher? Not so much complaining actually but more like terrified that I could handle the kids? Well... turns out I had more fun than I had anticipated! =)
This is their playroom cum 'learning'.. if i'm succesful!
Though it was hard work having to prepare lesson materials for the kids. To make sure that the things/games/story that you prepare are interesting enough to hold on to their attention for as long as humanly possible! I never told so many stories before in my life! Heck! I never told little kids story before! Haha... do you know how short their attention span is? When you tell them you're gonna tell them a story, they'll squeal in delight, but 2 minutes later they'll start to get up and walk around! Kids! =(
But they can be so adorable! So innocent yet so intelligent! The words that come out from their mouth would make any adult faint in surprise! And they're just merely 3 or 4 years old! One thing cute about them is how fast they quarrel and make up with their friends. Their favorite sentence seems to be
'I friend you okay? Don’t friend ___ (insert name here!)'
And they're super clever in telling tales...
'TEACHER!!! ___ never do homework!!!'
"TEACHER!!! ____don't want to friend me!"
''TEACHER!!! ___ beat me!!!'
And you will have to be the judge/prosecutor/social servant! Haha...
The innocence in them right now this very moment really makes u realize how beautiful children are. They don’t care wat race you are, or wat sex you are, just as long as you are friendly with me and don’t snatch my toys I’m fine with u. How many of us are like that when we grow up?
This particular boy was very happy to take photographs but for watever reason wanted to hide behind his bag giving that cute face of him for me to shoot! Talk about modelling! =)
Yup!!! I shall definitely miss them... I miss Eason the 3 year old boy that can write alphabets, read a bit of Chinese characters, and sing along to most of my nursery songs! And how he can be so mischievous when no one is looking but when you give him a stern look, he turns to an angel! And how small size he is which makes me love twirling him around!
I miss Marvin who just loves complaining about his friends to me as for some reason or another seem to be always quarrelling with this other boy. And how he'll share with me his stories from home when he's the last to go home.
I miss Yit Jou coz he's the sweetest, cutest boy in the whole class! (Actually I can't say that coz all of them are cute!) The way he smiles... he's mouth would form a smiley kind of face but he wont show any teeth! And he's just super shy! And the best thing, he has a pony tail. A super long wan! A cool 3 year old! I'm in love!
I'll definitely miss all of them! My week long experience even though with it's downs can't beat the ups that I received from this lovely kids! Each and every one of them... Special in their own individual way! Though I don't think any of them will remember this young inexperience teacher of theirs! Blowing a kiss to all of them!!! Muarx!!! =)
There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace.
