back to school brag book found at Ahhh Scrap!
In honor of the start of school on Tuesday and the fact that I am a kindergarten teacher, I am sharing a picture of myself when I was in kindergarten. I went to kindergarten in 1966 at West Yarmouth Elementary School. It's now called Margaret E. Small Elementary School. I remember that Mrs. Kennedy was my teacher. I remember having Oreo cookies and milk for snack. I remember we had a sandbox in our classroom. I also remember learning my colors from construction paper circles that were cut out and placed on Popsicle sticks made to look like lollipops.
Notice the short hair cut? My mother always gave my sister and I pixie hair cuts? (Are you old enough to remember those?) My mother used to tell us that if our hair was long enough to pull, it was too long. I guess maybe my sister and I had aggression issues LOL!
One of my most vivid memories of kindergarten was the day I wore the maroon sweater set. It was a knit skirt and jacket and was very pretty. I guess I had chosen part of my own wardrobe that day. All day long I was having trouble keeping my "undergarments" up. Come to find out I had put my mother's underwear on and it kept falling off of me!!! Oh, the things that we remember LOL!
