Kindergarten Orientation Tomorrow! (by, m)


Tomorrow, 80 or so nervous parents and 40 wide-eyed children will come to hear my colleagues and I talk about September.

I’m in charge of giving a speech on the following:

*Fine and Gross Motor Skills*

-children must wear velcro shoes…I have no time to tie 40 laces.

-children must be able to do up their own buttons, esp. pants…for obvious reasons.

-children must be able to climb and descend stairs independently (literally, it’s in the notes they’ve given me…do some children not have that skill?) [EDIT: now that I think about it… little sister A bum shuffled down stairs till she was about 11]

-they must be able to “run with control”

-J’s personal fave “knowing and understanding personal space”

Wish me luck!


About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
