Kindergarten & So Much More!
Posted August 27, 2012on:
As we get ready for “Back to School” and a whole new group of children will be heading from Pre-K into kindergarten, celebrate kindergarten and welcome your children to the wonderful world of learning!
As a former kindergarten teacher, a mother and grandmother of kindergartners I can attest to the fact that the words of my favorite poem shared below will ring true for a lifetime.
Celebrate your children – celebrate kindergarten!
“All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten”
by Robert Fulghum
Most of what I really need
To know about how to live
And what to do and how to be
I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top
Of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sandpile at Kindergarten.
These are the things I learned:
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life –
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.
Enjoy these school years! They go by too quickly!
