My day at Kindergarten

Today was my first day of helping out in Sam's classroom. I LOVED it!! And do you know why? Because my job was organizing the Scholastic book orders. I remember watching my teacher do this in grade school, and I was envious. Seriously, I love to organize, I love books, I especially love touching new books. I got it all! On the downside, I couldn't help but note who ordered Spongebob...

After my hour-long project was done, I got to take a few kids, one at a time, and sit down with them at a table to work on rhyming words. I have to admit, the first kid I picked was Sam. He breezed through it. The two other boys I worked with had a looser understanding of rhyming, but I still had fun with it.
One little girl, who I hadn't talked with at all today, actually painted me a picture. It was so sweet...I hope she doesn't feel bad when she notices that I forgot to take it home.

I loved the book orders too when I was a kid! That would have been the job I wanted as well. There is just something about those new books!

What is it about the book order? I loved it too. I would go through the order form over and over again, making sure I picked just the right books. Then my parents would go through it and cut my order in half.

When I took that ECFE class I was able to, once again, partcipate in the book order. It brought back some good memories and I got some good deals on books for Jack.

Yeah, they have some great deals. Unlike some other things I've seen sent home!
