06:54 am: last reading day?
I've been reading at Montessori kindergarten Thursdays at lunch for a year and a half, and today's the last day. Next week is K-swap, when morning and afternoon kindergartens switch, and Teddy won't be eating lunch with the full kindergarten any more.

I hope to read to the "swappers," who eat together before heading to their various public schools, though I suspect it will be a very different dynamic. It's a much smaller group, for starters, and they'll be ending their Montessori day. There will likely be some pressure for them to eat quickly.

On the other hand, they won't be rushing through lunch to get to Lego, so it could be quite nice.

It's been a really fun part of my life. I've calmed down considerably from that very first time, when I was drenched in flop sweat within minutes. The kids don't scare me any more. I love seeing the kids' reactions to the books I read (I enjoy the teachers' reactions too, actually, as they seem to enjoy my book choices), and I love seeing Teddy in the middle of one of his long days.

I hope the new variation is equally rewarding.

On the agenda today: Clorinda, City Dog and Country Frog, and the Planet Pluto (from a Scholastic book pack on planets, so no link - sorry!).

Question: What are the implications about me here? (Not that I'm self-centered or anything like that.) But I never read outside the home. And at that point in your life I was a stay-at-home mom. But spend my beautiful voice (inside joke) reading to somebody else's kids? Not me, girl.

P.S. The update you told me about hasn't appeared on MY screen yet. Sigh.

Update was yesterday at 12:18.

No implications about you with my reading, except that you taught me to love reading. Thanks for that!
