Swings and Sun – The Perfect Partnership on a Monday afternoon.
“The swing is tickling me!” – one of my kindergarten students exclaimed as she pumped her feet back and forth in the afternoon sun yesterday.
At first I thought she had said, “The sun is tickling me.”
The joy of being together – even masked – on the equipment is hard to describe.
After pushing another student for a few back and forths I realized what she meant.
I asked her,” Does the swinging make your tummy feel funny?”
YES! The recognition of someone understanding what she meant was priceless. She doesn’t know that is the same feeling as being on a rollercoaster….yet.
One of my favorite parts of kindergarten is how they chose their words to describe something. It is one of the many areas we can learn from them!
