Holiday Fun Work

Click the pix for larger picture.
A group of parents asked me to teach their preschool kids during the holidays. No problemo. They have rented a nice preschool classroom at one of the universities here. It is well equipped and kid friendly. We do an hour a day, which is about all 4 year olds can do with their ferret like attention spans. We do about ten minutes of lesson, followed by a Sesame Street clip, more lesson, then Donald Duck, a song, a game, lesson, Betty Boop, bathroom, etc. Time flies by, and we all have fun. We went to the park this morning, which was a lot of fun without a lot of learning getting done. Sometimes fun trumps knowledge.
