So here we have tonight’s instalment of Kidlet Captions!
This is a corker (even if I do say it myself!!!)
Don’t forget to send me your funny captions- please share with someone who has a good sense of humour!!
So here we have the first in our new series of “Kidkets Captions!”
For the past few months I have been keeping a note of the blinking hilarious things that my children say to me on a daily basis!
Some will make you cry with laughter, some will make you wince, but I guarantee all are fab, and came out of the mouth of babes!
If you would like to share your funny quotes with us, please comment below- we would love to hear them x
But for now I leave you with “Kidlet Caption” número Uno…
We’ve all been there I’m sure, we’ve always had that one little poppet who just knows how to press those buttons.
Even the best, most outstanding teachers amoungst us, will at some point had moments of self doubt! Fear not… Here are some great tips to help restore calm and order, and remove those barriers to poor behaviour.
Everyday is a new day- “A new beginning always allows us to wipe the slate clean”
I found this awesome quote from Fred Rogers whilst surfing around the net this morning! (Cup of coffee in hand- my favourite way to spend a lazy Sunday morn!)
Too often some practitioners will ask… “But what are they learning- they look like they are just playing!!”
Hands up if you’ve ever experienced this?
I tend to get my ikea fold out soap box out, and explain that although they are “just” passing a ball to each other, two months ago that little 4 year old there used to spend the whole time hurting other children because he/she hadn’t learnt YET how to use their words to convey feeling, that most of their time was spent being changed by a grown up because they hadn’t yet developed an understanding of personal care. That two months ago they wouldn’t have been able to catch the ball yet with two hands, because their hand to eye co-ordination wasn’t developed enough.
I then put away my fold out ikea soap box, and disappear in a puff of smoke to the thick of my learning environment to watch children at play, and extend their learning!!!
I am a definite puddle parent, my children at school know if its raining more often than not we’ll grab our wellies and waterproofs and head on out!
Last friday it was absolutely tipping it down, we donned our wellies and waterproofs and spent a delightful afternoon splashing in puddles and hunting for snails and slugs!
We had a few minor incidents, one of which consisted of me dropping my iPad in a puddle, but apart from that all was grand!!
I didn’t see one littley with a sad face, what I did see though was big huge smiles, giggles, whoops to be free of the stuffy classroom! Children jumping, chasing, hoping, running, discovering, chatting, squealing with delight!
So…. Are you a puddle parent? Or do puddles get you in a muddle? Would love to hear below!
