Highlight of my day 😊

The kids were eating animal crackers. I noticed one was a hippo and I pointed it out to D.
Me: “Oh, look D. It’s a hippo.”
D: “Po.” (while looking up at me)
Me: “It’s a hip-po, D. Can you say hip-po?”
D: ….. “Po.”

Ayyyy 😍😍. He’s so cute❤❤. He can’t quiet speak yet, except for his numbers and letters, but he will try to mimic if you ask him to say something.

Day 1

It feels weird not waking up at 6:30 in the morning and getting ready for the day. I woke up at 8:55 am and thought to myself…’Mrs. Goldberg is out there on the black pavement getting them right now…oh wait…it’s raining. They are probably in the gym waiting for her to come pick them up.’ The other day, a student was asking me, “You’re just joking with us right? You’re not really leaving?” That just broke my heart to pieces 💔 😦

It’s going to take some time getting used to it. Every time I look up at the clock, I think about what they are doing, as I have the class schedule etched into my mind. Without even thinking, I think about it. It’s 12 p.m., they just went to specials. It’s 1:15, they’re doing math. It’s 2:23…they’ve started Daily 5.

I wonder what the school looks like without all of the student teachers. Did it change? Does it look different?

The other day, my mentor teacher accidentally let out that I have a month left of student teaching. The whole class is devastated. Especially this one little guy who thinks everyday is my last day. He is constantly hugging me, holding my hand, staying close to me. Yesterday, he followed me halfway back before I realized he was walking right behind me. I asked, “where are you going?” And he said, “I want to go with you. I don’t want you to leave ” And then I told him I’m not leaving today! And then he’s like “Oh!” and walked back to music. That kid just melts my heart sometimes
