I offered to come into the classroom and help Mrs. Holman a couple days a week. She mentioned she could use help with the end of the day and Show and Share. With 18 kids, of course she does! I figured the first day would be the day Tot would share.
It was also voting day (for the Republican primaries). So of course, I did this first.
Then back I came to her classroom to help the class of 18 (breathe) kiddos.
I have to admit, when I arrived, I peaked in the little window to see what they were all doing. It was free play while Mrs. Holman got their folders together. Tatum was sitting on the “reading” seat and asking the kids around her, “Who wants to hear a story?”She was playing teacher. That is when I walked in, and she ran up to give me a hug.
After I helped Mrs. Holman hand out the folders for them to put in their backpacks (Tot helped me identify the kids), it was time for the Show and Share.
Tot jumped on the rocking chair and waited for the kids’ respect.
She then held her teddy and told them all that it was her special bear, it had a rattle, and she loved it.
When it was time for questions, one boy asked its name and where she got it. She said Baby One and she got if from her mommy.
So cute and brave was she!
It was so fun being in there! I plan on going back weekly to help Mrs. Holman. It’s amazing how she does it! Lots of energy balls in there.
