School has been back in session for 4 weeks and already I’ve done about three poster assignments! Kindergarten and pre-k is a LOT OF WORK!
The first assignment was due the Friday before Labor Day. We had to get our truck serviced, the laundry done, the refrigerator went out… needless to say that poster didn’t get turned in until the following Wednesday! Already my child is turning his homework in late. Nope, the dog didn’t eat it; his parents are SLACKERS!
So, when this next poster assignment came up, we wanted to turn it in early! Surely we’ll get brownie points for that – right! My 3 y. o. also had a poster assignment similar in nature but different. Well, my loving husband came home with both poster assignments on the same day and we got right to work on them… coloring and pasting pictures that are particular to each child’s likes and habits.
Today my husband took the posters to school and proudly presented the one poster to the Kindergarten teacher – a whole day before it was due. The teacher looked at the poster, looked at him and quietly said, “That’s the wrong poster.”
We (my hubby) had the wrong assignment for each child. The posters had been switched. Mind you, the deadline is TOMORROW. Did we get a pass? An ‘A’ for effort?
Hhmm… The kindergarten teacher looked over the posters, saw that we can’t exactly switch the names on each posters since the content is personalized. She went right to her storehouse and jerked out a clean copy and said…
“Here you go! You can turn this in tomorrow.”
