Playground fads

Like preschoolers everywhere, imitation of the teacher is how they learn and imitation of each other is how they play. Last week it was "pull your sweater over your head for a hood" day followed closely by "find a stick and pretend it is a gun" day. Today they took their sweaters and wrapped around their faces to mask the lower half and - lacking suitable sticks - folded their handkerchiefs into triangles and held them like small revolvers. Everyone was on the same side and the bad guys hovering in the corn field never had a chance.

Meantime on the slide, attempt to break legs were at an all time high.

I have never heard a kid cry or seen one tattle or yell unfair or get angry. They just run and play, fall and shake it off.
