Day 25: Crash and Bump

While working with Kindergarten children, I noticed that they crash and bump into one another often. I would see them running at full speed, intent on their goal and not paying attention to the friends around them. Heads bang and, after a few seconds of stunned silence, the cries  begin. Bumps require a trip to the office for the small baggie filled with ice. Soothing words and the comfort of ice pressed against the bump are enough to stop the sobs. Five minutes later the injured parties are up and running again. And still not paying attention to their surroundings.

  1. I enjoyed your pots and I like the comment from your reader about ” disciplined freedom” – very nice pairing of words – and it sounds like you both have the kind of class I would want my kid to be in (well when they were younger – ha)


  2. It is amazing how children can run and bump into each other, walls, furniture, anything in their path, and then get up and continue as if nothing happened. If I tried it I would be bruised and have trouble getting up. LOL. The joys of being young.
