What My Students Learned in Kindergarten

While most teachers taught things like numbers and letters and sight words today, I taught "How to properly use the bathroom" and "How to use the sink."  I never thought to teach this in the beginning, mainly because I didn't think those were things you learned in kindergarten.  I guess it was wrong of me to assume PARENTS would teach their children anything. 

Anyway, I'm telling my boys that learning to put the seat up and down is a skill that they will use the rest of their lives, especially when they get married.  And one replies, "I'm five.  I can't get married."

bless you for tackling this in the class room. Really. BLESS YOU. I hope you get a wicked awesome gift from all the moms at the end of the year.

Wow, yeah I don't remember any teachers in Elementary school teaching potty skills. I love the reply from one of your boys though...priceless.
