Here is Will trying to "teach me" about my ABC's. He claimed that he HAD to wear the headband across his forehead!
*Last year I taught preschool out of my house. I loved teaching and I especially loved the kids! The problem was..... Will was my WORST student! And I am not trying to be prejudice or anything, he truly was horrible. He would climb on the table, throw things, hide under the table, etc. He ended up spending most of the preschool days in his room in "Time Out" while I attempted to teach the other "teachable" children. After I was diagnosed with cancer, he started going to preschool at Copper Kids and he was AMAZING! He would listen, do his work, and pretty much be awesome all the time! Could this be the same child I taught a mere weeks before??? As it turns out, I have met many people that have told me that when they teach or coach, etc., their kids will be the worst and they will act up constantly. So, I guess I am not the only one who has gone through this phenonomen.
*Fast forward to this year. I have priced many preschools around the Gilbert area, ones out of homes, and ones out of schools. And they are all soooooo stinkin' expensive!!!! I guess Bagdad really did spoil me and I just need to buckle down and pay for one. But in the meantime, I have been trying to teach him a little bit at home.
And here are the results........You be the judge!!!
The following are direct quotes from Will as I tried to teach him the ABCs yesterday.
------ "You win the ballyball of DEATH!!!"
--------" You hold this hook (hands me a hanger), and I will tell you when to say ABD!"
---------"Walk like A knee pad!"
----------After squishing some letter flashcards together, "This looks like a B sandwich!"
---------- "Mom, you talk like a dirty bird!"
--------- and last but not least, "Mom, I wish you could get your BLAST on!!! But you can't cause you don't have too many energy yet!
So, it is pretty evident if he is EVER going to succeed in Kindergarten next year I better just suck it up and pay someone else to teach him his ABD's.
