I was assessing one of my partner's kiddos, we were looking at letter recognition. He looked at the page with a blank stare - he didn't recognize the letters. He came to the letter "x" and got really excited. I said, "what letter is that?" Proudly and with lots of confidence he said, "that is the letter 'no'.", as he crossed his fingers in the sign of the x. I looked at him (a little strange look). "Mrs. Sasaki, don't you know that letter is the letter 'no'." I wanted to bust up laughing but instead, "no honey, I didn't know that the was the letter 'no', thank you for telling me." He walked away with lots of confidence, I will tell him later. I made his day and he made my day.
And that is why I am happy that I am back in Kinder.
