How Patient Are You?


I am in charge of lunch duty for our Pre-K 3 class.  With little hands and fingers, much help is needed.  Parents pack the children's lunch but it still needs to be opened and straws inserted into juice boxes.  I hear choruses of Miss Debbie from the whole group of children at once.  Each one needs help and ...they want that help NOW!

I've had to stop at times and ask them "How many Miss Debbie's are there?".  They laugh and shout ONE Miss Debbie!  So I ask them to raise a quiet hand.  I tell them they need to learn to be patient.  I will help each one of them as soon as possible.  But patience is not something 3 and 4 year olds typically demonstrate.

Good morning! Having worked as an aid for years can I ever relate to this post! haha...though they called me Mrs. Class...It sometimes took a good 10 minutes just to get around to them all to get their straws in and containers opened ETC. (and these were elementary kids, not pre-schoolers, haha)I can remember saying, "Remember, my ears can't hear LOUD voices...and my eyes see quiet hands and patient faces first." Thanks for the walk down memory lane this morning...Hope you have a good day! HUGS
