Still Got It!

Some of my favorite moments with my kindergartners are the “silly” times…

I walked out to recess and heard screams, “Miss O’Gean, come play with us!!” So, I put my clipboard down and joined the soccer game…well, kind of. The soccer game was less of a game and more of a keep away from the teacher game.

15 vs 1. I caught on quickly to their plan and turned it up a notch. Yep, that’s right, I got the ball! Game on! I look back and to see smiles, laughter and some teeth –  we seem to be losing lots of teeth this time of year. Anyway, I ran to the end of our area and suddenly other kids were quickly jumping in to play defense against me.

25 vs 1. I was in trouble. I looked for any kid who I thought might take my side, no such luck. It was me vs them. They were not backing down without a fight and neither was I!

31yr old vs 5yr old. I got tired, they did not. After a few times back and forth, I needed a break. I heard giggles run up behind me and we laughed as we all caught our breath.

…I had to let them know that Miss O’Gean’s still got it! ;). I wonder if they’ll ask me to play again tomorrow?! I’ll pack my gym shoes, just in case.

  1. How do they never get tired?!?! I’m always amazed by their energy. First graders never get tired either. I bet you’re the star of their dinner time stories tonight! Hope you do pack those sneakers tomorrow 😀


  2. Adorable. In theory. Don’t think I could handle the little munchkins. I deal with the I know it all kind- teenagers. 😁 The them versus you mentality still occurs through the age groups but the medium changes. You get soccer; I get who’s cell phone made that noise?
