prairie hill 2012

i kept picture taking to a minimum this year. my point and shoot camera wasn't keeping up! above are the few images that came through. some of these kids i've known for the past 3-4 years. they are so precious. the things they say, the outfits they wear, and how they interact with each other is just...precious.

i learned a lot of new little sing-songs/rhymes this time around that i thought were kind of cute. like...
"Up goes the alligator on the elevator carrying his suitcase and mittens too. Down goes the alligator on the elevator he forgot his toothbrush and toothpaste too."
i don't remember learning anything like that when i was little! i would have been extra excited about it though. learning new things as a student happens all the time. likewise, learning new things as a teacher happens just as much. teaching is a field where you always are learning. learning what works for you as a teacher and what works for each individual student that you have. i have learned so much over the past year. it's not as easy as it may seem and i struggle with some aspects. i'm hoping to hit up a seminar or conference to really feel equipped when teaching. i often second guess myself and there's no room for that. you've gotta know your stuff. which, in itself, is kind of intimidating i think!
