I feel like journeying to those innocent days. LOL :p During those times, I remember my lunch box with pandesal and orange juice (or milo) in it. :) *hehe* I also remember those times when our kindergarten teacher would ask me to go in front to lead the nursery ryhmes. LOL :p And how can I forget the swings and the playground?? Oh, I love those times! *hehe* :) -- How about you?

Hmmm...let me see. I remember my hair in pigtails with my lunch box in hand everyday and I eat my snack in school with my classmates. I have to use place mat every snack time and I remember spilling lots of drinks. Funny I don't remember what was in my lunch box. I remember my classmate crying for not finishing an assigned task because he doesn't know the answer. I remember a very naughty classmate who was punished everyday by my teacher. I also had a hygiene and grooming kit which we had to use to keep ourselves clean. And of course the memory wouldn't be complete without the games I played with my friends.

Oh wow...remembering Kindergarten brings to mind hazy pictures with white rings around them (like when you see people remembering things on TV...lol). I remember this girl that walked around sucking her thumb ALL THE TIME...I don't think she took that thing out of her mouth the entire year! Playing in the sandbox...ick it never leaves your teeth! Ohhh and that was the sad year that I cut my hair for the first time...It was soo long and my mom had hers cut around her ears and silly me wanted to "be just like mommy". I was sooo upset after we cut my hair...IT LOOKED AWFUL! I thought I was going to be short-haired for the rest of my life :( Thankfully...it grew back :)

Hi kennedy! :) Hehehe... I love your post! We were really all innocent during those days and we never think "out of the box". I remember I had cut some of my bangs to get rid of them and when I look at the mirror... (DANG!) I'm bald (on the front side..) hehehe... :p I'm glad my hair grew, too. I had a hard time covering it for a couple of weeks. haha! :P God bless!

I remember my mum had to be called at school as I was beating up the boys in class (one steped on my brand new shoes and the other one borrowed some paper from me and did'nt want to return it). And also I remember my teacher broke her arm (she fell on some ice) and we were send home for a week.

Let's see. I remember the playground which was separate from the big kids playground. :P I remember the big crayons that we would use. The paints and smocks during 'art' time. Tracing letters in my tracing book. I remember the teacher reading to us and showing the class the picture on the page before flipping it to the next. Yep, kindergarten was a very sweet an innocent time in my life. :)

Our kindergarten teacher Mrs. Todd told us we were going to make a snake. I thought we were going to make a real live snake that we could hold that would slither, you know, like a green tree snake or a garter snake. I thought I was about to become God! * I was so disappointed when after we were done I was left holding a stuffed brown nylon stocking with two eyes and a smile pasted on it. It had nothing but grocery bags for insides. It didn't do anything but sit there.

haha! Thank you for sharing about this, CraftyCorner. It made me smile. Funny, how our kindergarten teacher "corrupted" and "mislead" our minds during those times. LOL :p

Hello Sr0415! The first thing that I remember about during my days in kindergarden is that I used to sit in Principal's office & used to chat with them. This would seem quite strange, but I used to do this. Actually I had a family like bond with the principals (they were couples). They used to treat me like their own child. After school, whenever my dad was late to pick me up, they used to sit with me & have a chat. They never did this with other students, I still don't know what was special about me & why principals used to chat with me. But I used to enjoy it. Then, I remember about one of my friends bringing small baby's milk bottle (nipple one) to drink milk LOL & everybody used to make fun of her as she did this till she came to 2nd grade. Then, I remeber about participating in a fancy dress comeptition as a bride & everybody praised me. Right now thats all I remember...vani^_^

Oh my...my memories are sooo different!! I remember waiting outside with my teacher when it was time to go home. My dad was suppose to pick me up some days and it was so terrible because he was ALWAYS late!!! So I would be standing outside with my teacher waiting for my dad to show up, and sometimes he was so late I would just go back into the school with my teacher and wait in the classroom while my teacher got her work done. That is my main memory, I can still pickure the wall we would stand by and the parking lot...uugghhh. Maybe that is why I am never late!!

I always remember looking forward to the bottle of milk we would get each day, but then dreading the lunchtime sleep we had to have as no one at that age wants to sleep. I also remember the small fence and thinking I could easily escape....lol!
