Never Under Estimate a Two Year Old
So, we've been learning about birds all year at 'The Nest' (what we affectionately call our classroom of ten toddlers and two grown ups). Thursday, this little girl told me, using full on complete sentences mind you:
"This is my nest. I am sitting on my eggs."
When she stood up there were two beach nutshells under her. Well, okay then. I snapped a photo to preserve the moment. Another moment to add to my mental file entitled, "Never Under Estimate a Two Year Old". It grows thicker with each passing day.
Here another two year old friend completes a pattern that was started by an older three year old friend. All the while naming the colors,
"Pink. Brown. Pink. Brown"
I wasn't near by when the older child was first building so I'm not sure if the language was something that was modeled or something this Little One just started on his own. Either way, I snapped a photo.
Moment # 200,000,000,000,000......................
I am reminded WHY I do this work.
Hugs to all you Toddler Teachers out there! (I mean the two year old teachers ;)
